"The Spark programme really helped me create momentum and pushed us to launch an MVP in a matter of weeks. Within 5 weeks we went from zero to having secured our first two revenue-generating customers. their team of product and ‘go to market’ experts challenged our thinking and approach as well as offer a wealth of invaluable tips and tricks. They helped us get much further and faster than we would have done on our own. highly recommended."
