It’s no surprise that 2022 presented a challenging economy for businesses, including tech startups. Whether it was supply-chain issues, increased costs or cautious investors, many of our founders navigated the turbulence of last year to keep building for a brighter 2023.
James Hilton, senior director of entrepreneurial services, said it was important for the founders to maintain positive mindsets and stay focused.
“Programming also was focused on creating connectivity among the lonely role of an entrepreneur,” he said. “Entrepreneurs received targeted milestones to reach attainable goals during the difficult economic climate.”
Our team continues to offer our clients various services and plans to support startups with the mentorship and advising needed to succeed. We are proud that our clients see continued growth with hopeful outlooks coming into this year.
