The competition was as great opportunity to hone in our business plan and practice our pitch, while connecting wit the tech startup ecosystem in BC.
This was one of the most satisfying relationships of RFind’s existence. We were able to derive a lot of value from the mentorship experience. The result has been a focused organization that has strong investor appeal. We had won even if we hadn’t won the competition.
As a result of the placing in the competition, we’re received unsolicited offers of investment, we’ve had meetings with venture capitalists, and we’ve got meetings setup with big competitors who are interested in what we’re offering.
The experience has been simply fantastic. A lot of work, but great planning exercise and disipline to make sure you are working ON the business and not just IN it! I have definitely learned that if you don’t, you can get lost in the details and not see the forest for the trees!
We found the competition challenging and rewarding, as it made our company stretch itself to really understand how others perceived our company, and why we need to clearly get the right message out to those who don’t have the benefit of our experience.
