Guest Post: Why MEGA - Vanessa Picker, Fit Us InBeing part of the MEGA program was a fantastic opportunity for FitUsIn. We have a mobile app and website which allows consumers to book hassle free gym deals- anywhere, anytime…at the best possible rate!
Before joining MEGA, we had an idea and a very basic website. However, we had not fully tested the concept and we weren’t too sure about how to quickly scale the idea. Through MEGA, we were connected with several mentors who could provide invaluable advice on an ongoing basis. Our lead mentor Gavin Artz was particularly helpful in terms of helping us to set and reach important milestones. We also learned a lot from the other participants in the program who all had incredibly diverse backgrounds.
The pitch event was a great opportunity for FitUsIn. We were able to pitch in front of Jana Matthews, the Program Director of the ANZ Innovyz Start Program. She gave great feedback, and then accepted us into the accelerator program which began a couple of months after completing MEGA. We are now about to close our seed round of funding, so that we can fully cement the concept in Australia and quickly begin international expansion.
MEGA, we would not have had the opportunity to pitch in front of people
like Jana Matthews. We may not have validated the idea as quickly as we
did. As a result, I would encourage anybody with an early stage idea
(or even those without an idea who are keen to join a team), to get
involved in MEGA. It will certainly help you to progress your ideas
quicker than you could outside of the supportive environment. Also, you
are bound to meet interesting, supportive entrepreneurs and mentors along the way!
