What Springboard Alumni Say

“Springboard was a transformational experience for CADshare, and for me personally. I entered the process with a concept I thought had potential and emerged at the other end with a solid foundation for the business and a well-articulated, credible investment proposition. Our EiRs provided world-class guidance and support, and access to the Catalyst Inc global network of contacts will continue to prove invaluable. Springboard gave us the confidence to know that we really are "investor ready".”
