Meet an Alumnae

"I really appreciated the mentors’ help. They helped us see our blind spots. This kind of knowledge only comes from industry leaders with high-level expertise. Contrary to what you may think, the boot camp is a community. We didn't just learn and listen, but we activley contributed, shared, and ultimately, improved our startup. It also helped us bond as a team. Not only did we leave with a strengthed product, but we left with a better understanding of ourselves."

- Tina Bychkova, Head of Digital Marketing at Synctuition

Meet an Alumnus

"The second bootcamp was one of the most eye-opening, informative, and entertaining experiences I've ever had as a game developer. It showed me that direct communication with users is just as important as a focus on big data."

- Maciej, Chief Creative Officer at Ahoy Games
