This month bring the second edition StartupGVL Launchpad 2023, where NEXT pairs early-stage businesses in the Upstate area with service providers willing to give their expertise to help small companies make big changes.
It’s more than just a contest. It respresents one of the hardest things a founder must do: raise your hand and ask for help.
Whether you ultimately win a service package or not, every applicant let NEXT know where what they needed and is having a one-on-one interviews with service providers. And these experts are asking important questions about what will have the biggest impact on theirs business — questions that need clear answers no matter how you eventually address it.
Now, go ahead and mark your calendar for the big giveaway and public celebration day, April 6, at the Greenville One Center. We were there last year, and it was definitely a day to refill your founder tank.
