Ben Hallett, CEO and Co-founder of Vygo.

"Vygo would not be the global scale-up that it is today if it wasn't for the ilab program and the Ventures Studio. Ventures believed in us early on and gave us the funding and early-stage coaching that we needed when we needed it. Ventures pushed us and as a result, we came out of it as stronger founders with a much stronger company."

"We were part of ilab in the early days and it was a great experience to be surrounded by other entrepreneurs and companies starting out! Long Pocket now provides us that same experience while giving us a space to execute our technical vision for Codebots."
