VMS has been a unique source of objective business advice and support for Cogito and for our founding/executive team. It is no exaggeration to say that this support was instrumental in helping us avoid major mistakes in the early stages of our growth. Now that we are bigger, the VMS mentor team provides an invaluable source of outside expertise both from a functional perspective (HR, strategy, financing, product development) and an industry insight perspective. On several occasions, the VMS team has also helped us identify and recruit the talent we needed to hit our growth objectives.
