Once I met with the Accelerator Program advisors, they really began to make things happen. There were no hoops to jump through. When you feel like you’re being heard, you start listening, too. If you’re serious about your business, you’re going to get a lot out of this program. They brought relevant people to each meeting and gave specific information for the needs of my brand.
