The accelerator was life-changing, not only was I able to interact and engage with some incredibly inspiring speakers and mentors, I was able to grow my network of fellow entrepreneurs who are looking to make a real change and impact on the world. One of the greatest outcomes I got out of the accelerators was setting up my MVP. Additionally, it has informed me a lot more about the marketing avenues and strategies around the brand. It further helped me understand the needs and requirements for building a community.
