Bernard Moon, SparkLabs Global Ventures, writing in from his recent experiences both as a serial entrepreneur and as an investor at a seed-stage fund,[typically a sub-$100 million fund] tells entrepreneurs and his portfolio companies not to overthink valuation... that you should be an informed decision maker and have some basic information to make the best choices for yourself and your company.

California has Silicon Valley. Ontario now has the Digital Corridor.

Silicon Valley is known for innovation and entrepreneurship, mostly focused on the technology sector.  It is a triangle nestling in the Southern portion of San Francisco.

Here in Ontario there exists one of the most concentrated centres of technology leadership and growth in the world, and it has not received its due – until now.

ventureLAB has definitely helped my creative marketing agency manage its ever-growing client list. My main concerns regarding growth, and management have been thoroughly addressed by ventureLAB’s experienced staff. The Begin Workshop taught me many of the basics of starting and running a company, many of which I previously overlooked, such as creating a measurable value proposition, as well as an effective positioning strategy. The one-on-one consultations offered by ventureLAB have enriched my knowledge of running a startup, allowing for my business and myself to have a clear direction moving forward. All in all, my experience with ventureLAB has been enlightening, and has helped to ensure that we are well-prepared for the road ahead, and that our clients are satisfied.
