"[I have] Nothing but great things to say about the program [LaunchPad].  Octane really helped to hone our initial pitch deck and focus on the important bullets that catch the eyes of the venture community.  Winning the MTIF 2018 Award was a great step in validating the AtaCor story and we continue to work with partners that we met through the Octane network… in fact Clay Wilemon and the team Brado just helped us launch our new website and animation over this past weekend."
