We have had excellent feedback from the accelerator founders, they liked the practical framework.
Through Kara’s introductions Net-Health was able obtain clinical trials with five hospitals in Qld which scaled our business into this market.
Using the MVD framework Kara helped me clarify my understanding of the importance, potential and viability of mental health data as a product itself. I highly recommend her and the MVD framework for any business in the wellbeing sector.
Kara provided strategic advice, helped us to develop trial proposal then facilitated discussions with specific industry leading professionals resulting in strong opportunities and trial interest with the relevant parties.
