Testimonial

“Working with LITE has been extremely helpful with the start-up of our 3D printing service. From the very insightful advisers to the great Pitch IT Competition they held, LITE has provided us with resources that have been crucial to our foundation. THANK YOU!”

Testimonial

“The LITE has been a great resource for showcasing some of my ideas. Great feedback from some very intelligent and experienced people. I loved the first Pitch IT Competition, it was a great opportunity to reach out to the entrepreneurial community at GMU and practice my pitch for Angel VCs. I very much look forward to further interaction with the LITE team and seeing just how far ARIMA Ventures can go with their assistance!”

Joseph Vesley, President, ARIMA Ventures LLC.

We are proud to share this testimonial by one of our E-Teams.

“The LITE group has shown a great understanding of the importance of entrepreneurship in an academic setting. Their mentoring and events have helped clarify the objectives of my business and technology. They have helped me identify opportunities for funding and assistance that I would not have known about otherwise. Connections with other entrepreneurs that I met through LITE have proved invaluable. I hope that other departments at Mason can follow the LITE example and build a vibrant entrepreneurship community. The LITE Pitch IT Competition was the best academic pitch event that I have attended. The venue was well selected, the advertising and schedule were well coordinated, there was adequate coordination during the selection of the presenters, and the judges provided relevant feedback. I hope to be able to attend future events from the LITE lab.”
