" In the first place, Startup Academy is a community. Besides educational information about customer development and other information that might be available in books, the Startup Academy is about people who are so different from a cubicle drone with a narrow corporate view of the world, and being an entrepreneur means you always have something to talk about with those people. Once you’ve tasted it you wanna eat it all".
Irina Kovbasa, a first-time entrepreneur
On June 27, 2014 I took the 3-day practical course Startup BootCamp GVA LaunchGurus. Prior to this course I had only the idea of creating a business; I did not imagine it implemented in reality. After completing the Startup BootCamp, I began thinking of not only new ideas, but also of the ways to address issues that would help me to materialize my idea and to create a business. I got a clear understanding of the tasks, methods to implement the ideas, and the experience of developing models for my business project. The coaches at the course so carefully and proficiently worked through students’ ideas, solutions, ways of development of projects, that there wasn’t a shade of a doubt that they also were anxious for our ideas. And tips, advice and practical exercises were invaluable addition to the training. I met interesting people who have their own personality, creative approach to life, who follow their ideas and make them a reality. This intensive course changed my attitude to work, to making money and to life in general. To all those who want to change their lives and career for the better, I recommend you to go to the Startup BootCamp GVA LaunchGurus

«StartUp Academy — for me it is the Temple of business knowledge, with its ineffable atmosphere. Any comparison or analogy would be inaccurate for to convey those positive emotions, fiery eyes and friendships that had developed over 10 weeks of training; it would be very difficult. The most important thing I saw and was able to feel myself was the desire to create (no matter what) and I am sure it will stay with me forever. Special thanks to Lawrence for supporting the fantastic atmosphere inside that Temple of knowledge».

During training at the Academy, we first have changed the focus of the service, understood clearly where to go, where to move the service, its positioning has been changed, - in this sense it was useful to study at the Academy. Secondly, we have structured our thoughts and theories about business! Now we use the knowledge gained in the Academy, also for other project that was born completely by accident! I think that now we won't spend as much time as we spent at the beginning of the project, without having the right knowledge. The main thing that the Academy gave us is the structuring of thoughts, the system of estimating a potential idea that can grow into the project, and the main asset of connections in various fields, which should be developed in a startup!

I came to the Startup BootCamp GVA LaunchGurus to test my hypothesis about whether we need platforms for financial technical startups today. This program taught me how to properly present my idea. I am very grateful for the motivational speeches of Gary and Lawrence. They insisted that we followed own idea and approached everything in most creative and versatile way. I would like to mention that the crucial is not so much your idea as the way you think, your way of communicating with the public, your ability to easily convey the idea to the people, get them interested. Here we analyzed our business models in detail. Special attention was given to the team. It is all-important, because sometimes investors are attracted not by the person’s idea but by his potential, his faith in himself and his team. Thank you GVALG for the opportunity to attend free classes where you inspire people, and paid ones, where you help us to find solutions for our products in practice!

One of the high pointing for me in 2014 was the Startup Academy GVAccelerator. I would heartily recommend anyone who found himself running in circles to fall into these guys' "clutches" - you will run even faster, but not in circles anymore. From the practical point of view, this is really a team that brings the world's top names to their students on a regular basis, and then takes those students to them, and if you want to broaden your point of view on a project in particular and on business in general, this would be the most effective way to do it in limited time. From the emotional point of view, which is contrary to the Russian way of doing business but very important especially for the startup phase - they are able to inspire even the most inveterate corporate cold fish :) get ready, they will put you in the way of unique positive stress. And it's important to keep on that passion. From the material and, let's say, the usual point of view - yes, we have built many key relationships mostly through them and less due to that, let's call it, impulse we got. Special thanks to our couch, Daniel Kozlov. To meet such a quiet preparer who professionally cuts whole layers of so darling for every startupper husk is a rare stroke of luck. We wish such luck and many other fortunes to all future students of GVA LauncGurus. And I am sure we will find common ground for the cosmic synergy!
