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.
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!
The services have been amazing. We’ve received invaluable accounting and legal support. As far as the cash is concerned, we’ve invested it in launching our first commercial product. The prize money allowed us to accelerate our hiring plans and to grow our amazingly talented team.
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.
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.
