What have previous business owners said about our Bootcamp:

I gained a huge amount of confidence and valuable content to apply to my start up by participating in the Slingshot Regional Accelerator. I feel like I have a fabulous new toolkit to apply and validation that the path I was taking was the best one. I also met some great people on their start up journey, which I really enjoyed.

The Pre Accelerator program was the best startup info I've found. To have access to people with such deep knowledge is fantastic. It's given me the ability to create a specific set of steps to grow my business. And it's free!
