Valley Venture Mentors Receives Major Funding from MassMutual
OK, what makes a great picture? If it is focus, then this ain’t a good one. But look at that joy! And what’s not to love? MassMutual announced yesterday that they are giving Valley Venture Mentors (VVM) $1.5M in funding for its Springfield, MA based program. From left: Jay Leonard, moi, Paul Silva and Scott Foster, all of VVM. We were giddy with excitement!
Bakepedia would not exist if it were not for the support of this amazing group of people. Valley Venture Mentors helped foster my nascent idea and I continue to participate within VVM as a mentor for other start-ups going through the mentorship program. MassMutal also granted $5M to the City of Springfield to encourage small-business growth.
PS: That was a marble cake with decadent fudge frosting. Recipe forthcoming!
