Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
QStart Labs and the Angel Capital Association (ACA) announce the addition of QStart Labs as an ACA Member Recommended Provider.
The addition of QStart Labs pegs the Columbus, Ohio based company as a leading provider of technology strategy, website development, and portfolio company advisory services for member ACA groups and entrepreneurial firms raising capital. In turn, QStart Labs will help reduce the typical cash outlay, time-to-market, and risk associated with technology-based ventures for ACA members.
“We are pleased to be included in the ACA Member Recommended Provider Program as a resource available to its members and their portfolio companies to drive towards successful exits by leveraging our expertise and unique business model.” said Kevin Hiser, President, QStart Labs.
Mr. Hiser added that: “The reality for both start-ups and their investors is that all too often technology investments fail to meet the business objectives. The primary cause is that technology partners do not understand the unique business challenges facing start-ups. This prevents them from providing pragmatic guidance in key business and technical areas that help the reach their goals. They become just another vendor to be paid vs. being a partner sharing in their risk and rewards. We focused on creating a business model built on aligned interests to ensure that our success is tied directly to the success of our clients The result has been that we are valued advisors to our clients and not a liability. This is why we have been recommended as a provider to the ACA membership.”
Marianne Hudson, Executive Director of ACA, explains: "The ACA member recommended provider program is designed to provide high quality resources for angel investors and entrepreneurs raising equity capital.” QStart Labs is the latest addition to our member recommended provider program because of their unique focus on helping investors and their portfolio companies succeed. QStart Labs' endorsement was submitted by John Huston, Managing Director, Ohio TechAngels."
