It was worth it. I’ll admit, I was slightly apprehensive about the outcome of the Bootcamp, as it was the first time we’ve organised such an event. Nobody has held a competition before for High Value Manufacturing companies. But it turned out to be a glorious venture, and it was a great pleasure to assist such high quality teams.
During the 2-day intensive programme, our coaches and mentors helped six High Value Manufacturing and Engineering companies (Omnisense, Inova-Power Limited, Zinir, Croft Engineering Services, Drop-Tech, and Vantage Power) with value proposition, market research, and business development, aiming to position them in a way that is more attractive to investors.
This is not an easy task to achieve, and our coaches and mentors spent a lot of time in organising and preparing materials for the teams. Therefore I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all of the hard work. The outcome simply wouldn’t be the same without the tremendous support. Here is some of the feedback we’ve received from applicants following the bootcamp event:
“The quality of the coaches and mentors was great – they gave us direct praise and, more importantly, blunt criticism. This has resulted in us looking to take a different path than the one we’d envisaged and to bring our investment plan forward by 12 months. Many thanks, it was a company changing 2 days!”
“The event surpassed my expectations in coming to it.”
“It was quite frankly the most intense but valuable investment-related event I have been to, and the quality and knowledge of the coaches and mentors was exemplary.”
Indeed, the teams were all outstanding, and I would like to say congratulations to all of them, especially for our Best Performed Company – Omnisence, and Most Improved Company – Drop-Tech. Good luck for the future!
