"With the help of ELEVATE we got an accurate understanding of the direction we needed to go in. The result was very clear from the reactions of our to-be customers: We came to the acceleration program with a “nice to have” solution and ended up with a “must have” solution. This was a huge step forward." Alex Kiiatkin, Co-Founder, Detectolabs
“We really profited from the hands-on, very product and customer-oriented approach that ELEVATE applies. TheVentury’s combination of content-input with direct support in implementing and translating theoretical methods to our individual business needs was – and still is - extremely helpful for the development of our start-up.”
