“I wanted to take a few minutes to congratulate you and the Institute for presenting such a professional and well-organized conference. The entire experience has been tremendously positive and constructive. As I may have mentioned to you before, despite my previous entrepreneurial success, this is my first exposure to the capital equity market. Thanks to this experience, I now have a much more solid understanding of how venture capitalists think, what they look for in their portfolios, and how best to communicate our message.

“I also want to tell you how much we appreciate our mentor team. We strove to incorporate the insightful comments and constructive criticism we got from them into our presentation. As a result, our story was very well received, both during the presentation and later in the break-out session. I have already made initial contact with several attendees, and I look forward to following up with them in the weeks ahead.”
