Tina William, Founder shared, “The Accenture B2B Coaching program has been a great experience for CyDeploy. First, the intentionality of the WIC and Accenture leadership that went into connecting us with our mentor, Divy Vij, was reflected from day one in meeting with him. Divy’s experience and openness to give informed feedback was invaluable. Further, he moved forward quickly with engaging his team to do a pilot of our technology and provide feedback from that pilot. We received great feedback about the value and ease of use of our solution, and that has provided us even greater confidence in the direction of our tool. We are continuing to work with Divy in identifying further ways to expand beyond the pilot. We are grateful for our experience, and the relationship we’ve been able to establish with Accenture through this program.”

Lisa Ann Edwards, Founder and Empowering Excellence through AI-driven Coaching Solutions for the Modern Workplace shared his thoughts on the program, stating, “Our coach from Accenture has been extraordinary, exceeding our expectations in every way. From day one, Jacques has pinpointed our business needs and facilitated crucial introductions within Accenture and with key partners. His insights into our pitches were invaluable, and his advice significantly enhanced our messaging. One of his most impactful suggestions led us to radically change our approach to cybersecurity, which was pivotal in acquiring a significant enterprise client and successfully navigating cybersecurity challenges in our proof of concept. This strategic pivot, driven by Jacques’ candid and insightful feedback, was a game-changer for us. We look forward to our ongoing discussions and sincerely appreciate this incredible opportunity.”
