I applied for the TVA grant because I saw an opportunity to learn. And I learned the necessary steps to not only attract the necessary Team to develop a plausible and substantial commercialization plan for a great idea/concept, but also commitments for all funding needs the same day as our Demo Day presentation. The $30K TVA grant certainly played a part in the success of Awestruck Dental, but the TVA program and experience was worth far more to me personally and to the company. Many thanks to TVA.
The Telluride Venture Accelerator program truly accelerated Globa.li's launch and success. Coming into the program in February, we were immediately and warmly welcomed by the Telluride community. With a vast network of successful business-people from around the world with ties to the community, Telluride is agreat place to launch a new business. Globa.li will always (proudly) have a network of friends, employees, investors and advisors in Telluride. Demo Day was a great opportunity for Globa.li to clearly communicate our vision and the investment opportunity, not only to the Telluride Community but to the larger travel, tourism and investment community. We are proud to represent the first class of the TVA and look forward to continuing to support it's success.
What makes the Telluride Venture Accelerator so special is its invaluable mentors and the support of the local community. From legal, to strategic, to industry-specific, TVA allows companies to tap into the brains and skill-sets of highly accomplished mentors who are eager and available to help. As early-stage entrepreneurs, we felt set up to succeed with ample resources at our fingertip
