TESTIMONIALS

"I got access to investors and learned what they focus on when they invest money in a startup. I was challenged on my way of thinking about Football Tribes which, was uncomfortable and hard work at times, and therefore extremely valuable for the journey I have ahead. I can highly recommend this experience to anyone out there." 

- Christian Videbaek

"I must say I saw the value in the Accelerator program right away. Even at $1,500 or $2,500 this program brings value as I'm certain you'll be raising the entry fee soon."

- Kyle Hannah

"I had an idea in my head about a tennis app (Full Court Tennis) that would connect players and coaches. From an idea to Beta, CoFoundersLab Accelerator has been there to help me with the journey. I watched, listened, and learned from so many amazing people. I feel like CoFoundersLab has helped to shortcut the process and helped me to avoid costly mistakes. THANK YOU!!!!"

- Brian Teacher, Australian Open Winner, 1981, Entrepreneur 

“I highly recommend the CoFoundersLab Accelerator if you're looking for help to start or grow your business. After I joined the community, I was able to get help with launching my business. Then after I got it up and running and had some income coming in, they helped me double my income which allowed me to leave my job to do what I love full time! Overall CoFoundersLab Accelerator helped me get the confidence I needed to take the right action steps to become an Entrepreneur! "
