Why it Matters

Post-cohort support and mentoring can help companies continue to raise the funds needed to propel their technologies forward, prepare for the top-level acceleration with a major national program, and keep their business rooted in this region.

Additionally, the Verge alliance, including RAMP, has an “ecosystem navigator” on staff to connect local entrepreneurs to highly customized resources and help facilitate introductions to national and global networks.
