What the Alumni Say

“Startup Spotlight is not just about getting feedback on your product – there’s a lot of value added for the founders’ professional upbringing as well.”

“Taking part in the program helped shape our future.”

“We were really pushed to iterate faster and review our strategy.”

“Being there added a lot of value to the direction the product is going.”

“Max Kelly, Alan Clayton, Carlos Espinal – we’ve met all of them and many more at Startup Spotlight. Don’t know if we could have had 1-on-1 meetings with them anywhere else.”
