"Capital Connection'12 was my third opportunity to present and I was thrilled to see MAVA organize such a successful event. Especially in the context of a tough economic climate, I thought the event showcased a surprising number of exciting companies (with impressive presentations) and a strong ecosystem that is helping them succeed. This exceptional event was a great reminder of the role that MAVA plays as a key enabler for innovator and investor partnerships in our region."
"The energy at this year's Capital Connection was remarkable and a real testament to the vibrant entrepreneurial community here in the Mid-Atlantic."
"This year's theme was returning the focus back on the entrepreneur. I was most excited to see the response from the entrepreneurs, the quality of those presenting their businesses, and the engagement of those just attending; which is what will ultimately keep this conference as the MUST-ATTEND event in the mid-atlantic for VCs, entrepreneurs, corporate and professional partners."
