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.
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.
We learned new things that helped us refine the message and helped us to avoid common mistakes. The seminars are packed full of information that will help guide your business, and the networking sessions offer you a chance to meet all the right people to help move your business forward.
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!
