"Their perspective and advice are worth a million bucks or, in my experience, $10,000 — the amount of prize money that I won after consulting with the TechFW team. To say that their insights are winning material is an understatement. They were entirely receptive to my ideas, but not without challenging me in a needed and life-changing way. They helped me elevate my pitch so that I could win a local competition, yes, but even more impactful was how their feedback showed me what my small business truly needed to scale.”
