Many of the industry’s biggest companies started as rising stars at an NCN event.
NCN was by far my most successful fundraising endeavor. In the end I had eight term sheets, a few of which came from NCN investors, and the rest of which could be traced to NCN connections.
At our first NCN event, we struck a massive partnership with the Natural Products Expo and got a new customer. At the second event, we found a strategic investor, Factory LLC. This network is the real deal!
Our experience at NCN was very productive. We honed our business plan, met many new high-level contacts, and the recent announcement of our investment from DSM Venturing was largely the result of the NCN process.
The benefit of the NCN meeting was instant exposure to some of the biggest names in the food and beverage industry. Our company’s mission resonated very well with the strategic initiatives that these companies are focused on, and we are very confident that the business development opportunities that are underway will result in significant revenue for the company.
If invited I would present again and have no hesitation in recommending NCN investor meetings to budding entrepreneurs in the nutrition and health & wellness industry.
