OPN truly is an organization for entrepreneurs runed by entrepreneurs. They help us achieve our goals in the best possible ways, as they had been in our shoes before hand, that is what makes a difference and helps us succeed in our own businesses. They bring all their knowledge and expertise to the table to genuinely assist us with our start-up. Jeffery have provided us with experience, confidence, strategic planning and most importantly all his trust for SupplyExpert to start growing and becoming the best start up that it can be. We are very grateful for the wonderful team OPN is and the outstanding experience we have had with you.
Having recently graduated from two top-tier accelerators, set up a supply chain and corporate partnership, and raised $1m+ in Kickstarter pre-sales, Mindset is incredibly well-set for the next stage of company growth. This next phase – fundraising, product launch, and scaling – brings about a completely new set of challenges, for which the stakes, expectations, and complexity are significantly higher. Tackling these challenges will require a deep business understanding, a vast network, and significant mentorship. For Mindset, OPN has filled that gap. Jeffery Potvin and OPN have provided mentorship and networking opportunities that have been critical in leading Mindset through our seed stage growth. Whether through introductions to angels and VCs, legal support and coaching through their connection with Miller Thomson, or simply brainstorming on go-to-market strategies and operational infrastructure, OPN has been ready to jump to action at a moment’s notice. Their help is relevant, specific, and effectively translates years of experience into actionable insights that founders can leverage to grow their companies. For Mindset, OPN has been invaluable.
Working closely with OPN has been a great experience and we are excited for the future. We love the grass roots setup of OPN. They bring the communications back into startups and help showcase Canada’s best companies. Looking forward to a long term relationship in supporting the startup community.
