New Ventures BC
9th Floor – 1188 W. Georgia Street
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 was one of the most satisfying relationships of RFind’s existence. We were able to derive a lot of value from the mentorship experience. The result has been a focused organization that has strong investor appeal. We had won even if we hadn’t won the competition.
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.
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.
NVBC gave us access to an excellent network of business professionals. We were able to refine our business plan and receive feedback from a fantastic mentor panel. The entire experience was outstanding – I highly encourage start-ups to participate!
