“Before Newchip, I really didn’t have too much knowledge about how to fundraise. Newchip was very educational for me, as far as showing how to set-up my business on a foundational level to accept funding. I learned how to ‘move differently’, and station my business so that investors would appreciate what I have. My pitch deck was very basic when I joined the Accelerator, but when I graduated it was so much more detailed, and I’ve seen success from that. I formed a very strong relationship with the attorney that has helped me along the way, and I would not have even reached out to that attorney if I hadn’t learned the importance of having a legal partner to navigate certain situations.”

“The thing that I have found in Newchip that I never had, despite all my years of being an entrepreneur, is that raising money is an art form. It’s a process, and what Newchip did is it taught me a lot of stuff that I didn’t actually know. Newchip packaged it in a way, and put together a sequence of events that was new to me. Being a process-oriented guy, that’s what I really liked about it. It followed a pipeline that I could run my project through, and I would know where to stop and start to keep moving forward. The people I dealt with were extremely knowledgeable about the things they were knowledgeable about.”
