Hear from previous programs' participants
This course was amazing, it has increased my confidence, knowledge, networks and really made me feel excited about taking my idea further, I did not think it was possible to learn so much in 5 days!
The mentors were amazing support throughout the program and shared a wealth of knowledge and contacts which will in turn help me to grow my network in this entrepreneurial venture.
Always felt supported and made great friendships out of it. It also exposed me to other businesses that I could partner with in the future.
