Open Road is very accessible, moves quickly, and is very supportive. We had a very good experience with them, and their funding came at a critical time for our company.

ORA are open, accessible and great to work with- and the process is straight forward and not burdensome. It is useful to have a conversation with them about the issues you are facing before applying (and in any case they need to send the application form based on that discussion)- but they are accessible.
