Immediately helpful! Will contact Brad again.
Really appreciated Brad's insight and generosity of spirit! Now back to the drawing board, "defining the question."
Brad quickly assessed the situation and gave us a good framework to think in. Very nice, super helpful. Thanks!
Brad has exquisite strategy insight.
Brad's advice was invaluable! He was very forthcoming and provided unique insight that I could not have gotten from a book or lecture. He provided invaluable and specific insight on my business model, target market, relationships with co-founders and funding.
Tremendous honesty and true willingness to help. Brad helped validate some ideas, and gave great insight into my company's future.
Great conversation with Brad. He helped me better understand marketplace dynamics and provided practical examples of how it might work in my business. We unpacked the idea of remnant assets and how leveraging them can be very good for a marketplace business. He also provided me with some very good feedback on TechStars. I highly recommend talking with Brad. He immediately understood my business and was able to provide me very discrete feedback.
Brad offered great advice and opened my mind to the power of networking as an entrepreneur! Highly recommended and will set a follow-up call once I've hit certain benchmarks set with the call!!
Great advice & easy to talk to. Thank you Brad.
Gave great advice and was helpful. Definitely someone you want to have a chat with about your startup.
Brad was incredibly helpful, got straight to the point, and gave specific and actionable feedback. Our conversation was, hands down, the most productive one I've had about fundraising strategy to date. Thanks Brad.
