Multi-Level Training Testimonials
"I wanted to thank you for your idea2Impact Bootcamp this past fall. I think it has helped us position ourselves for a better Phase II proposal, with writing the Commercialization Plan." -Steve S. (BootCamp Participant)
"I have been involved in several entrepreneurship and commercialization programs; the IMPACT program is so well thought out and well run. You have a best-in-class leadership team. The participating teams are so fortunate to have your experience, guidance, support, and encouragement to take them to the next level. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to mentor through the IMPACT program. I am looking forward to the rest of the program and watch the teams evolve, progress, and become a step closer to improving the quality of life for so many.” - Ian M. (IMPACT Mentor)
"I think it is really, really important to get out there and talk to people. And so in addition to while Robert [our mentor] was contributing to our plan and his feedback, …having that kind of push to go out and do that was really helpful because that was what really solidified things for us and also shed some light on some areas where we didn't have quite enough information or maybe we had only part of the information." - Andrea A. (StartUp Participant)
"Nancy and Michelle [IMPACT Center team] offered suggestions and provided guidance on how to scope the work, possible people to interview and how to refine the goals. This was outstanding. The actual conduct of the 4th River work served to validate and deepen what was discussed in those planning meetings."
- Mark R. (Accelerate Participant)
