New Ventures BC
9th Floor – 1188 W. Georgia Street
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!
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 most invaluable and well run program we have ever participated in – simply a #mustdo for any tech entrepreneur in BC.
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.
Winning the NVBC top prize brought us recognition, exposure and validation. The news releases have generated tremendous interest for our technology in North America, as well as globally. We have been fortunate to absorb major investors for our commercialization phase.
