Now, we are faced with the launch and commercialization of our first B2B product. We joined the Tech Venture Accelerator with the hope of learning more about business development. We were thrilled with the quality and depth of the program which seemed to speak directly to our needs. The format of the cohort meeting suited us well, as we were able to ask questions and delve deeply into the topics that have the most direct impact on our activities at work right now. Hearing the experiences of other tech companies and learning from the speakers who spoke with us (instead of at us) gave us the know-how and confidence in how to approach our new market."
