The process was something our entire team got behind and I am truly grateful for the experience. Not only were we lucky enough to take home the top prize, we were able to further highlight the amazing talent within Victoria’s tech community.
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!
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 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.
The competition added credibility to Loom. Being in the Top 15 from ~165 original companies definitely created traction for Loom, and has led to a new partner and investment. We’re really impressed by the organization and the structure of the competition.
