NVBC Experiences

Awesense entered the New Ventures competition in 2011 with the goal of showcasing how we pivoted our business model to the judges. This wasn’t our first attempt at the competition. We learned new things that helped us refine the message and helped us to avoid common mistakes that have helped us tremendously beyond the competition.

The seminars are packed full of information that will help guide your business, and the networking sessions offer you a chance to meet all the right people to help move your business forward.
