Incubate Your Startup with Dave McClure

Learn how you can accelerate your startup with the help of an incubator program! You will be able to hear how and why teams get selected, what incubators look for in a perfect proposal, and how can you get the most out of an accelerator program.

We are excited to have:

    No new information was given. I spoke with other attendees who are entrepreneurs and thought the same. The information given were all pretty obvious business advice and was hoping for more specific ground breaking info.
