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.
The mentorship and networking were great and the time invested very much worthwhile. Winning the competition brought credibility and funding, which allowed Saltworks to accelerate its solar desalination technology and grow the company.
The competition added credibility to Loom. Being in the Top 15 from ~165 original companies definitely created traction for Loom, and has led to a new partner and investment. We’re really impressed by the organization and the structure of the competition.
We are extremely grateful for receiving the recognition and support from the team behind the competition. Being recognized as a winner provides us with additional validation in support of our fund raising activities.
We are targeting a much larger market with a better business plan, and have closed $1m in seed funding. We’re creating more jobs, all as a result of participating in the competition.
