The pace has picked up considerably. It really feels as if an entire year has elapsed during those 2 months. I cant believe that June 1 was even this year, and now its August 1. There was an amazing amount of information to absorb. I am very glad that I now have the knowledge that Startup Academy gave me. Its scary to think what I would have endured or where my project would have ended up without Startup Academy. Startup Academy in a word is fun, tons of contacts, innovation, drive.’’Vladimir KovalskiyStartup Academy is a very good theory and practice hybrid ofbuilding a business.
