What Our Clients Say About Us

"As part of the University System of Maryland, we embarked on an ambitious journey to create an inaugural venture fellowship program, and Franklin Advisory has been a cornerstone of its success. From the application process to vetting students, arranging interviews with a curated selection of VC partner funds, and providing rigorous VC training, the team’s meticulous approach has been nothing short of exceptional. The white-glove service they provided to all VC partners was a testament to their commitment and professionalism. Their contribution has not just met but exceeded our expectations, making them an essential partner in any venture looking for success and impact. They are simply indispensable.”

Mike Ravenscroft

"We have had the pleasure of working with Franklin for two investor summits and had excellent experiences. Their team’s planning and execution brought together panels, lunches, one-on-one investor meetings, and receptions seamlessly. Subsequently, Franklin is now working on programs and events at our other JLABS locations. If you’re looking for a team that can deliver impactful, well-organized, and successful venture events, we would recommend Franklin."
