Hans Constandt, Founder & CEO, Ontoforce NV

Raised €4.6 million

“In our path moving the company forward, we not only raised 3.2 Mio equity capital plus 1.4 non-dilutive funding, we also grew the company to 22 employees so far and have 43 customers, of which 11 are multinationals. To get here it was of utmost importance to be able to clearly communicate to investors, experts, prospects, partners and customers the same story in different packages with the right accents. [Beth] definitely has a hand in us winning these contests and getting so much visibility. I not only thank her for that but also recommend her highly to any startup, scale-up, accelerator or incubator.”

Raised €1.2 billion matched with €400M over 7 years

“We just learned we have won the EIT FOOD KIC – a unique EU supported innovation consortium with >1 Billion Euro funding. Beth has done an amazing job in preparing the team for the pitch and Q&A session. We spent a number of days together where she not only reminded us very effectively of the basics of a good pitch, she also helped us give a top communication performance both individually as well as a team and she became a hands-on team member with suggestions to improve clarity and simplicity of the message. And if Beth invites you to do the sessions in her residence Sitges (Spain), just say YES.”

Raised €1.2 Million

This session has helped me create an absolutely kick-ass pitch for the Fish 2.0 competition at Stanford in Silicon Valley. Before we spoke I was feeling overwhelmed and a bit panicky about having to do this pitch. It’s so hard to think about the strategic stuff when you’re also running a business. But after 45 minutes, we literally went from 0-100! Now, I feel so enthusiastic and excited about my pitch. Thank you!”

Raised €100.000 for technology development

“Beth’s workshops have been invaluable to us. She gives concise, constructive criticism, which over the course of two days has transformed our presentations. The first time we attended her workshop we came out with a slide deck, which convinced a judging panel to award us a €100K prize to develop our technology. On the second occasion, we honed our message further to the extent that we were able to establish key industry relationships, which led to our first sales. We’ve just finished our third workshop and have begun to realize that Beth has not only improved our presentation but has forced us to examine and refine our core offer to potential customers. I cannot recommend these sessions enough.”
