NVBC connected us with a group of mentors who continue to support us today and the competition process made us think critically about our business (with deadlines). Participating in the NVBC competition was truly a turning point for our company.
This is the start of what an entrepreneur is, especially for anyone who hasn’t had the chance to work with a mentor. It’s 10 weeks of great classes, meeting people, a chance to pitch and be criticized. If you have an idea and want to turn it into a business, I can’t think of any better program.
We were able to refine our business plan and receive feedback from a fantastic mentor panel. I highly encourage start-ups to participate!

We hoped for a good vetting of our business by a credible and well-regarded jury. The results exceeded our expectations. The insight provided by our mentors was instrumental in preparing and refining our presentation, while contributing to the development of our business.
