The most invaluable and well run program we have ever participated in – simply a #mustdo for any tech entrepreneur in BC.
The New Ventures BC Competition is an awesome way to galvanize the local start-up community, bring expert mentors together, and focus on the fundamentals of starting a tech company.
While we did not end up winning cash prizes that year we did gain incredible value through the networking, mentorship and education that NVBC provided. We made connections that continue to be of value today.
The services have been amazing. We’ve received invaluable accounting and legal support. As far as the cash is concerned, we’ve invested it in launching our first commercial product. The prize money allowed us to accelerate our hiring plans and to grow our amazingly talented team.
We were able to refine our business plan and receive feedback from a fantastic mentor panel. I highly encourage start-ups to participate!
