“SUMMIT is a great program to kick-start your business and push it further faster. Not only did you learn to pitch and get your pitch perfected you also get to meet awesome people who could end up being mentors for your company, or investors. I feel well equipped and ready to go out and take on new challenges. I would recommended it to everyone and anyone. It’s a great program to have you go into and have your business move forward fast.”
