What People Say About Us

“The mentors in the German Accelerator network are amazing. We have already had multiple great sessions and got some extremely valuable insights to help us scale various aspects of our business in the U.S. The only limiting factor really is time: There are so many great experts to meet – but unlike our business, we can’t grow our days beyond their current 24 hour limit.”

Sven Merten, Managing Director U.S. at COMATCH (New York 2019)
