“Too often, I find myself traveling from Richmond to New York or the Valley to raise money. I sometimes see local investors there! I’m excited because this enables us to find help where we live.”

“Working with it really helped us map a path for the growth of the product because we were able to see very clearly, the point we were really at, at the time. It’s possibly the best strategy for investor communication for early-stage startups.”
