We asked Jon Goriup Dermastia, CEO & Co-Founder at VCG.AI to share insights on his startup's Ventures Thrive journey. Here’s what he had to say:

“VT connected us with incredible mentors that have helped us with preparing for our seed round investment, developing the business model, marketing and IP strategy that will all greatly support our future growth. It provided us with the expertise and outside perspective that is invaluable for our company moving forward.

We made significant progress with our product and the product development team to fulfil the first large commercial contracts. We signed powerful partnerships with WWF, Oracle and VIRIDIS to get increasing market access for our scale up and we worked on our patent strategy to protect our market advantage.”
