The whole experience with TechLaunch and the BullPen I attended last night was very positive. Although a seasoned entrepreneur I found the mentoring very helpful and I am sure it contributed to Audio Directions being the winner at the event. The event itself was well run with everything on time and professionally organized. There were a lot of attendees, many of whom were Investors, and I appreciated being able to get our company’s business opportunity in front of people who could help fuel the journey. As the winner I am grateful for the provision of free legal and mentoring services as well as the opportunity to pitch to specific investment groups. I encourage anyone going through the challenge of growing an early stage business to apply for this program.

“Vognition has just received a significant institutional investment, and I know my experience and education at TechLaunch allowed me to launch my own company a few years later. As a bonus, one of my TechLaunch mentors became a lifelong coach and is currently a member of my board. So a big thank you to TechLaunch and its network for supporting me to get launched. I will continue to recommend TechLaunch to anyone who has the opportunity to get involved with your team.”

"TechLaunch gave my cofounders and me the opportunity to pursue our passion full-time. We had been meeting on nights and weekends for months, but it wasn't until we knew we had the support of the TechLaunch network behind us that we felt confident to take the plunge. Now, two years later, we have 11 full-time employees and we'll be launching not one, but 4 products this year. Without TechLaunch, I don't know that we'd be here today."
