"We got valuable feedback and honest thoughts. Also the people and mentors we met there become very important in our journey. We built strong relations and community that otherwise would be very difficult."
"I came to Startup Camp without a precise idea of how my business should work. I knew what I wanted to deliver but figuring out how to do it actually took place during the event. Therefore, all the work I did since was actually the outcome of the Startup Camp. What also helps significantly is the great inspiration and ideas from mentors as well as participants."
"Direction, support, connections. Great project, keep it going by all means!"
