Participant feedback

I really enjoyed the opportunity to visit real founders and real startups, to actually see where and how they work, as well as working on a real project by ourselves and getting the end product ready in such a short time.

We got to learn so many things. From coding to finances, and how to set up our mindset to have the best results working in teams.
