Participating in the IDEABOOST program gave us access to mentors and resources that accelerated the development of BeMused Network's beta service. The assistance we received at the early stage of our knowledge network development will go a long way in allowing us to reach our next goal.

Turning an idea into reality truly takes a village. The amazing team running the program gave us the support we needed, and advocated for us wherever we went. The colleagues and supporters that we worked and continue to work with will no doubt be the most valuable thing from this experience.
