The only program of its kind in Kansas City that requires a minimum of 250 interviews for every business that goes through the program to ensure product market fit
One of few programs of its kind in the nation that has an internal product development team
So this is a class, I’ll tell anyone who is thinking of starting a business, or even if you’ve started and you’re at a place where you’re feeling stagnant and you do not know which way you want to go, it might be a good place. Not “might be”. It will be the great place for you to be at. Just, it will be worth it. I will tell you that.
