I want to take this opportunity to thank you both for putting together the Virtech Accelerator program (and please convey my thanks to the rest of the Expara team). It was a truly unique and wonderful experience. I really enjoyed participating in the lessons, along with teams from all over the world; it was really fascinating. Definitely a first for me, but with the COVID-19 aftermath, we will start having many more experiences of this type! I also feel that I learned a lot in Virtech. It was great to understand the logic behind VC investments (get the inside "scoop") and to learn how to present ourselves much more professionally (business plan, pitch, etc.). I feel much more prepared and better equipped to face our next business challenges! Douglas, I also really enjoyed the way you taught your lessons and managed to convey to us some of the hard truths of VC investment in such a cordial way.
