"As a participant with the MDIC, I wanted to say that it's been the most productive event that I've had the privilege to be involved with. The mentoring and contacts and the learning aspect of trying to get a start up going has been exceptional. Without help from this competition I would not be where I am today.  All the hard work you put into this event to make it possible for start up companies like mine to have a positive direction to go in.."
