“Early-stage companies have a sense of urgency. Velocity helped us by setting the fast pace that was needed to grow Bridgit. Being surrounded by other startups and quality mentors pushed us to move more quickly and never leave for tomorrow, what could be done today.”

“Velocity gave us the tools, support, and advice needed to go from just a ‘good idea’ to an actual business. By sharing a high-energy office with other startups at the same stage, we built a strong group of peers solving similar problems to us — a network we still tap into today.”
