NVBC has provided an additional network to tap into and resulted in an introduction to the VANTEC angels. Excellent mentor panel feedback during the presentations. Provided tight timelines to apply the rigor needed to finalize the business plan.
The most invaluable and well run program we have ever participated in – simply a #mustdo for any tech entrepreneur in BC.
The mentorship and networking were great and the time invested very much worthwhile. Winning the competition brought credibility and funding, which allowed Saltworks to accelerate its solar desalination technology and grow the company.
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!
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.
