"The New Venture Competition (NVC) was truly the start of our public journey. It was an incredible opportunity to share our story, refine our business model, and receive valuable feedback from experienced investors and operators about our go-to-market strategy. HENRY was exposed to investors, partners, and future team members, who learned about HENRY at the NVC presentation."
