We are truly fond of working with the NEM Ventures team. Their advice about legal structure, cap table modeling, PR, and commercial strategy helped us transform from a pre-seed small startup to a serious international structure. Also, we feel that NV is interested in our success as strongly as we are. This is a real "smart money" partnership that we appreciate a lot.

The team at NEM Ventures has been great for Ample. Whenever we needed advice on fundraising, product or strategy or other topics, there was always someone with experience available to advise us. In the beginning we had a really big vision which a lot of funds were not comfortable dealing with. The team at NV saw through this and helped us to de-risk the idea and find quicker routes to market. They team also made some key introductions to us, in particular finding a critical team member. It isn’t just the advice we asked that benefited us either. Sharon and Dave were always ready to ask the tough questions or give a shove in the right direction as necessary. I do highly recommend joining the NEM Ecosystem and in particular working with the team at NEM Ventures.
