What People Say About Us
The German Accelerator was truly an eye-opening experience that went far beyond entering the U.S. market. The German Accelerator’s expert mentors constructively challenged our plans and helped us re-evaluate our strategy. They worked with us to sharpen our value propositions and improve our ability to execute. After three tough, but rewarding months, we finished the program as a better, more focused company. And I left the German Accelerator as far better entrepreneur with the confidence and training to address the type of obstacles I face on a daily basis running an early-stage, fast-growing startup looking to expand into the U.S. market.
