We have a clear path to where we want to go.
“Exponential Impact has been the single most important facet of my personal entrepreneurial experience thus far, and the single greatest catalyst for our company’s growth. The care and approach by the program’s leadership helped our company to understand and execute the startup journey and process in ways that we undoubtedly would not have been able to on our own, and I know because of our experience trying to do it on our own! The program leaders genuinely cared for me, my co-founder, and our families in ways that went far beyond their obligations or expectations. Their knowledge and experience alone made the accelerator a robust experience, but their quality as people set the experience truly apart. As a result of the summer accelerator, we have company building blocks, knowledge, and access to resources that have expanded our vision, and we have a clear path to where we want to go. I have nothing but the highest recommendations for Exponential Impact and its leadership team.”
