The viaNetwork announced today that it has partnered with the National Business Incubation Association to provide its video-driven SaaS solution to client companies and members in over 60 countries. The Cambridge startup has been busy attracting and promoting talent and entrepreneurs throughout Boston’s innovation community since the launch of its visibility tool in August. The company’s software – viaRésumé – helps emerging talent and their companies self-promote via various video technologies and professional media outlets. From executive addresses to elevator pitches and testimonials, the viaNetwork is helping entrepreneurs connect with investors and other resources through short video presentations.
NBIA’s director of business development, Sheila Buckley, commented on the news: “We are very excited for this promising partnership with a company who truly understands technology’s role in the plight of entrepreneurs. The NBIA is proud to offer viaNetwork’s services and support to our client companies and members.”
NBIA encourages business entrepreneurship by supporting over 2,200 incubators and accelerators around the US and internationally. NBIA’s incubators support 30,000 startups in over 60 countries. The viaNetwork’s solution provides incubation managers with a video CRM to remotely screen, track, and communicate with client companies.
“This is a tremendous tool for entrepreneurs seeking access to resources that may not be available locally. The team’s vision for a better ecosystem is helping cut through geographically-binding barriers and allowing for the most relevant connections to be made,” stated Dr. Martha Farmer of North Shore InnoVentures.
The viaNetwork recently opened its second office in the Seaport district of Boston, giving ample opportunity and access to a burgeoning enclave of entrepreneurs outside of Cambridge. Its model currently grants preferential access to tiered investors who subscribe to their services.
