Without exception, all Startups have been extremely grateful for this call as it has guided their journey for the next 6-12-24 months. For PSI, the call enables us to qualify if we can raise funding for you, via our main fund raising project of 2-3 months. For you, the call is of even greater importance to get feedback from PSI, if you are VC/ Angel fundable, get specific guidance for your next 1 year, or introductions from us etc. Do briefly study our Corporate Profile/ website to understand the various things we do for Startups including Funding, Corporate Sales (of $100K-$1M), Strategic Alliances, Industry Specific Mentors, free software credits for $10,000 from Freshworks CRM, Free AWS Hosting etc.
