We have been extremely fortunate for being introduced to Edupreneur Village.Working with them was a total pleasure. The number of dry runs we had on our presentation, the number of details we went into for our Information Book, I have not experienced with any other Venture Partner.
Edupreneur Village has helped us a lot, we completely believe in the overall idea of Edupreneur Village and this is probably taking us one step closer to reaching our 100 MN learners goal.
I would like to thank and appreciate the Edupreneur Team for taking such a good initiative of encouraging budding entrepreneurs like us. The way you have been handling this one year long event is too good to be true. Your approach is different and spot on from other networks like yours.
Special Features I liked the most: 1) Encouraging non-selected startups too 2) Feedback Report is made at its best
