Springboard Startup Spotlight: BuildFire

Apr 3, 2017

As BuildFire CEO, Larry Blair leads a highly qualified and experienced management team that fundamentally changes the way mobile apps are built and maintained; empowering more people, without involving IT departments, to produce and manage mobile apps resulting in huge productivity gains and cost savings. We had the opportunity to ask Larry a few quick questions about BuildFire and his experience in the Springboard Accelerator program. 

What’s the best business advice you received from the Springboard program?

Larry Blair: BuildFire Inc has benefitted from a well organized CONNECT entrepreneur development program to fine tune our company presentation and value proposition to investors. The CONNECT process delivers highly qualified experts to advice,  coach and deliver feedback that is then tested among a progression of panel presentations. Throughout the process, constructive feedback and important reflections improve the quality of the overall company presentation. BuildFire sincerely appreciates the mentorship and process provided by the CONNECT organization.
