NVBC has provided an additional network to tap into and resulted in an introduction to the VANTEC angels. Excellent mentor panel feedback during the presentations. Provided tight timelines to apply the rigor needed to finalize the business plan.
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.
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.
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 NVBC process and mentors help even the most seasoned veterans elevate their game and really think hard about the business and strategy. In every case, we graduated from the competition a better, more viable company.
