WHAT OUR FOUNDERS HAVE TO SAY
"HAX taught us the skills we needed to get our business off the ground. We learned about sourcing and manufacturing on the ground in Shenzhen, and as a result we were able to bring our first product to market in nine months with very limited capital."
"SOSV & IndieBio provided a great entrepreneurial environment surrounded by fellow scientists, excellent lab facilities, and contacts to the Bay Area life sciences community. The breadth of SOSV’s companies provides a unique perspective, and has exposed us to different global ecosystems through fellow portfolio companies."
"Food-X helped us build and launch a market validated product, raise venture capital, and ultimately exit to one of the leading technology companies in the space. We couldn't have achieved what we did without Food-X and SOSV."
"The accelerator breathed life into what was previously just an idea...The team at SOSV truly understands that successful early stage investment is more than just throwing money at an idea - it takes support, advice, and a strong community. We're lucky to be part of it, and it's why we are where we are today."
"SOSV gave us the opportunity to play in a leveled playing field and operate globally. With the funding and support from Chinaccelerator and SOSV, we managed to relocate the company to Europe and start growing it into what it is today, with 20 staff and 100+ customers. When it comes to early stage investment into startups, SOSV are second to none in supporting entrepreneurs from any region and any background, as long as they have a solid idea and the ambition to make it happen."
"As an industrial designer, I thought I had an understanding of building hardware before coming to HAX. Now I know I knew nothing. Actually seeing and experiencing manufacturing in China first-hand gave me the confidence of knowing the ins and outs of building a product. As a company, we now have credibility and trust. And in experiencing my HAX peers and their work ethics and performance, I know that you can make anything possible."
