There was very little wait time between each step with personal contact from staff along the way. The criteria for receiving a positive outcome was new to me.

Full transparency is a 'must' for engaging with Open Road. They are built on the idea that roadblocks occur, so they want to hear all the details of what you are facing. Yet at the same time you must demonstrate that your team is thorough, committed, and ready to follow through once the funding challenges is mitigated.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Risk taker, Builds relationships
