What our previous participants say:

Irene, eMotion Group

Extremely knowledgeable speakers – being a startup with a tight budget, this was exactly what we needed.
A comprehensive subject where they have really managed to communicate the essence of it, so that it becomes accessible and understandable to startups.

Christian, Masterchannel

Make Happen was our first accelerator as a company and it was really great the way we were challenged by the different mentors. I recommend this for any start-up wanting to get a better overview of how to test their market fit and how to think of branding and sales.
