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!
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.
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.
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!
Your mentors are your ticket to taking your business to the next level. Ask them to be as candid and honest as possible, that’s where you’ll find the gold. We can’t thank our mentors enough for all their amazing support and mentorship during and after the competition!
