What do previous participants say?

"The finance advice was incredibly helpful & interesting; Lauren ran both our finance modules, and took some time to speak with each of us individually giving us very specific advice, where else would you get that all arranged for you?" Alys Smith, Sudslure, Startup Academy Participant, Focus Newtown Enterprise Hub, Jan-April 2020.

"I think all SMEs should send a representative to attend the course since they may get a different perspective on what they are currently doing and incorporate new ideas into their business." - Chris Wells, Startup Academy Participant, Focus Newtown Enterprise Hub, Jan-April 2020.
