The acceleration program helped develop the project from scratch. At the moment, our OSTO project is one of the most popular online stores in our country, than I am grateful to this program, because it was here that our team learned how to properly present a product to attract investors."

The organization of the program was at the highest level, all experienced lecturers and coaches were happy help us with any request. We got into the community where we acquired invaluable networking in our field."
