RescaleLab has exceeded my expectation in delivering the content for the workshop. It was engaging, fun and an eye opener. The case studies presented helped with the delivery of the content and the sharing session by the industry experts expose the participants to the real problems and trend.
I vividly remember that when I left my job to do a startup, I had mixed feelings and was uncertain on how to begin. Taking the course that Gus and his team designed, provided me with a much needed framework on how to begin my startup journey.
