“Right-Hand Partners is an outstanding resource for start-ups seeking venture funding. RHP provided valuable presentation coaching in preparation for what turned out to be an extremely well run and well attended event. The one-on-one visibility conference gave our company access to over 20 VCs in one shot. We communicated our message to more VCs in one morning than we have in the last six months combined." (Ben Dehan, CEO, DinnerBroker)
