a must for aspiring entrepreneurs

“This bootcamp has helped us to formulate our product Encore. This entire expertise was very important to streamline our product, streamline our market, business plan and even our revenue models. Personalised mentoring sessions were really effective and mentors gave us ample time and were available for us. The flow of the program was perfect. Must for aspiring entrepreneurs.”
Priyadarshini Dey, NexConnect Ventures

tailor made, 360° experience

"Very well structured, like learning to solve a mathematical equation from ABCD. The final assignment that we had to develop had been bifurcated into small small things…it was really nice to understand. Mentoring sessions were very nice. The key takeaway for me was to think in terms of a customer and not in terms of a developer. The content and module were very thorough…designed with a good thought process…it was a complete step-by-step learning process."
