Startupbootcamp gave Full Venue the foundations we needed to become a scalable, wealthy and attractive company. By surrounding us with a great and powerful partner network we had the opportunity to focus on pitching, raising money, closing deals, and finding new business. It was crystal clear to everyone around us that we as a team had grown significantly by the end of the program.
