What our Entrepreneurs are Saying
“From the rigor of the Mock Angels program, our due diligence files are in order and will reduce time to funding. Our pitch deck and presentations practice and refinement led us in part, to acceptance in two Cultivation Capital accelerator programs–SixThirty FinTech Accelerator, and the Prosper Women-owned business accelerator. We continue to reach out to mentors as we need assistance in particular areas.”
“ITEN has got to be the best resource for tech entrepreneurs in St. Louis. Our business has benefited beyond what we could have anticipated. The one-on-one mentorship has helped me grow as person and an entrepreneur. The hard work preparing, giving, and redoing our presentation for Mock Angels was worth the long hours. We also have raised funding only a few months after the Mock Angel Program. Great team at ITEN with real wisdom! – Jim Koeting ( Founder of PFITR)
“Going through the Mock angel program forced us to examine our business on another level. It pushed us to make changes and evolve to become better. Working the Mike Gaddis as well as all the other mentors, supporters and team members has been game changing. Thank you ITEN!” – Dan Lohman ( Founder of Pushup Social)

This program gives you time with people who have experienced raising capital. Their constructive feedback on our investor pitch has really helped us think through what we want and certainly helped us raise capital in St. Louis. With ITEN’s support and network we believe we can grow Tallyfy to a position where we can one day contribute back to this community.

From the rigor of the Mock Angels program, our due diligence files are in order and will reduce time to funding. Our pitch deck and presentations practice and refinement led us in part, to acceptance in two Cultivation Capital accelerator programs--SixThirty FinTech Accelerator, and the Prosper Women-owned business accelerator. We continue to reach out to mentors as we need assistance in particular areas. We attend the ITEN Venture Café each month, and continue to get value from the ITEN network, and the presentations. ITEN also gives us a place to give back and help newer entrepreneurs where our experience can be helpful!
- Suzanne Magee (CEO and Co-Founder Bandura, LLC-- and Chairperson of TechGuard Security, LLC
The ITEN Mock Angel program has been an extremely valuable experience. Thanks to the “pitch practices” and due diligence process, I feel much more prepared to raise money from institutional investors. More importantly was the feedback and mentoring support from the EIR’s, which were truly insightful and helpful throughout the entire program. Starting a new technology venture is challenging in so many ways, and thanks to the ITEN Mock Angel program I feel prepared to take my business to the next level.
- Christopher R. Deck (President of Deck Commerce )
Mock Angels was an invaluable experience for us. The varied backgrounds of the mentors produced feedback that really forced us to examine our business in ways that we hadn't. The mentors who volunteered to work with us made themselves available as often as we needed them. They really immersed themselves in our business model and not only helped us hone our pitch, but became true champions of our company.
ITEN's program and mentors have been amazing to work with over the past year. Their experience and expertise in every major field of a business has helped us polish all aspects of our business model. Their personal interest in our company's success is truly apparent and we are excited about the next chapter of our relationship.
- Brian Lord (President & CEO of Sitting Duck Advertising)
The expertise and support I found at ITEN helped me to define and launch my business. I came to ITEN with an idea and graduated with a company. -Nancy Murray （CEO of clEAR)
