09 Nov Ephyra Wins in Many Ways
In the fall of 2013 we were approached by a long time friend to participate in the BF TechCelerator, an entrepreneurial training program developed by Ben Franklin Technology Partners and the Capital Region Economic Development Corporation (CREDC). This business mentoring and entrepreneurial training boot camp offered the information and advise we needed to help us organize and properly launch The Ephyra Group. The support and knowledge we gained was invaluable.
This eight-week program culminated in the presentation of our business plan concept to a panel of local business professionals that included: Chuck Russell, Senior Partner from Collective Intelligence; Bob Graham, Managing Partner from Penn Venture Partners, LP; and Bob Joyce, Chief Operating Officer from BioHitech America. We were honored to find out that we were awarded $4,000 from the board to help us take our company to the next level
