Head of Digital Marketing at Synctuition

"I really appreciated the mentors’ support. 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 actively contributed, shared, and, ultimately, improved our startup. It also helped us bond as a team. Not only did we leave with an improved product, but we left with a better understanding of ourselves."
