Jerod and Andrea have an excellent vision for Venuefox but more importantly listen to their mentors and customers feedback to continue to improve themselves and their company. I am excited to see what the future brings for these entrepreneurs and Venuefox.
As a small business owner, I know how painful planning holiday parties and training programs is. That's why VenueFox seems like such a surefire winner to me, and the reason we wanted them to be a part of Iowa Startup Accelerator's inaugural cohort.
In addition to a solid idea, the founders are aggressive, sales-oriented entrepreneurs. Andrea and Jerod led the pack in doing Customer Discovery interviews in the first part of our program, and quickly gleaned insights from the marketplace to adjust and hone their idea and their business model. They've already got a huge database of vendors signed up, and are seeing early traction as the holiday season approaches. I am truly excited to see this team proceed and become one of Iowa's most promising startups!
I have been truly impressed by the amount of work and determination these two entrepreneurs have put into Venue Fox. They have taken market feedback and pivoted to a place where they can have true success. They are listening to their customers and partners in developing their MVP. I think they have a real shot at a winner here.
