Without Connect involvement, we would be years behind where we are now. Invent allowed us to hone the most important skill for investment; pitching and offered publicity on a national scale. Springboard was the main tool that allowed us to secure investment, it made us evaluate every part of our business and then be critically assessed. The 'nowhere to hide' process was invaluable and had an enormous impact on investment. Co-founders Wanted put us in contact with the brilliant Ronan Cunningham who lent us his years of expertise and experience, opened his contact book and pointed us ahead. We have been to California twice with the NI Tech Mission and are hopeful in signing a licensing agreement with a global brand as a result. My advice to any business that has the opportunity to work with Connect - Grab tight with both hands!
