Pleased to announce that we are now an affilate of IdeaBOOST!
By Katherine Dodds, May 17, 2013
Hello Cool World wants to congratulate all those companies who made it into the Spring Cohort of ideaBOOST!
We're thrilled we have been included in the first ever IdeaBOOST affiliates program, and while hile we're sad we weren't one of the chosen six to be part of the Spring Cohort, we are still very pleased that we made it to the top of the page views, and the top three by boosts (thank you all our boosters!). Below is an abeit narcissistic screen grab of the page views rating! : )
But seriously, we were very thrilled to get the support of so many people, it gave us a chance to 'go public' with our intentions to fund and develop our integrated platform and it has helped us hone our pitch which is very useful. We have been calling it the 'Dream Machine, because this really is our dream. Even getting on the shortlist has been a big boost to our project.
We also feel very fortunate that because of the buzz we generated and the strength of our proposal, the CFC and their sponsors have chosen to include us as one of the additional companies granted 'official' affiliate status for the IdeaBOOST program, complete with networking perks and opportunities to pitch potential investors.
“Congratulations to all of the companies who entered – the quality was exceptional,” The CFC’s Chief Digital Officer Ana Serano said. In addtion to the six chosen, Serano added: “This year’s entrants were all of such a high calibre, that we’ll also be launching ideaBOOST’s first Affiliate Program, enabling all of the companies who made it to the shortlist to participate in a select number of ideaBOOST sessions, peer-to-peer learning and strategic assessment modules.”
To see all the winning companies as well as the affliliates go to the IdeaBOOST.ca site.
You can also see our Hello Cool World Dream Machine entry there. We're going to use this momentum and feedback to make our pitch for this grassroots platform even stronger. We will still need your help to make our "Dream Machine" come true!
