As a founder of a startup, networking and access to the right expertise is incredibly important. I became very curious when I heard about the 657 Community, and was eager to sign up. The same day I started using Sprinterwing, I found a super-relevant potential mentor who I contacted – and we booked the first mentor meeting the same day.
