Client Testimonials <ul><li>“ The DSEA has been very useful for our start up company, eCAMION.  We have been introduced to key companies in our market of Smart Grid Technologies and without DSEA, it would have taken much longer to build and cultivate those relationships.  Through the DSEA, help was given through a Market Analysis of Energy Storage for the Smart Grid.  This Market Analysis was a key factor in choosing a direction for our company.....”   Carmine Pizzurro, President eCamion Inc. </li></ul><ul><li>“ .....At first, I was apprehensive about attending because I thought that I already had a pretty good grasp of my own value proposition. However, we performed several marketing exercises which really helped me to better understand my target market and where I fell relative to my competition. Having this better understanding allows me to focus on the key aspects of my product that differentiates it from the competition in the eyes of my target customer.....”   Danilo Malanczyj, They INNOVATE Inc. </li></ul>
