The session covered the essential information required to understand fundraising for a start-up. Including an investor as a guest speaker also helped to provide a different perspective on the process. Without doubt this is the best foundation for start-ups currently available in the UAE.

It was really a re-energizing experience for me. Sometimes you can feel really alone and weighed down — talking to you guys and the rest of the group was uplifting in and of itself — let alone the great info and experience that we are literally today implementing.

I did not only have fun but really benefited from such an outside perspective of my business. The sharing of knowledge among the participants was invaluable and the weekend was full of passion and energy.  This is what we need as entrepreneurs to realize that we are not the only one facing challenges. We learned within three days what would have taken me months to figure out on my own.

The Best thing was providing three specialized Trainers/Speakers from different background and experiences in Online Marketing.

Nisarg Ved

The best thing about the workshop has to be the practical application of the concepts and techniques. Creating analytics and adwords accounts gave me a real time experience of how these tools actually work. Otherwise the theory would just remain conceptual, but now I will find it much easier to apply them on my business. And also the fact that the mentors are approachable post the class which gives me a feeling of security that if I get stuck, I will receive help! (The mentors have already helped me in 2 situations)
