“John Zambakkides - Z3 Controls
ventureLAB was directly instrumental is us gaining a vast amount of experience and knowledge in all stages and phases of a start-up, starting with BUILD, to the series of excellent sessions from finance to launch, and the mentor program which has been critical is us reaching a number of organizations that helped Z3 Controls' growth. We had the opportunity to attend and talk to IP, trademark and copyright experts, as well as legal advise among other things. The opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs and experts was most helpful. Looking back, I must admit that ventureLAB provided us with a series of seminars that covered all aspects of a fledgling company such as ours, with a seminal impact that was invaluable. It is exactly what a company like Z3 Controls needed to get us on the right track and perfectly align us with what we needed to go to market with and succeed. We will be forever grateful and indebted to ventureLAB and its fine people for guiding us and teaching us, mentoring us, at a time when we needed all the help we could get. Thank you ventureLAB.”
