⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Walter Kruger - 2 months ago

“I totally enjoyed this course. There were ideas and concepts related to business that I had never thought about. This course caused me to look at the bigger picture, then go beyond that to a spot where my biggest dream is a reality. If I can dream it, I can create it and I can be it. Through out the whole course there are opportunities to seek additional supports. The weekly ZOOM sessions went at a comfortable pace and were humorous at times. Thank you for everything.”

“Impactful, informative and accessible content. Perfect for an entrepreneur to get inspired and motivated. Had a good balance between online learning, interaction and personal course work. Highly Recommend!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Christopher Costello - 7 months ago

“While I wouldn't say anything was "ground-breaking", that's kind of the point showing anyone can work through the materials and launch. These sessions were set up in a logical order and was easy to follow. What's great about the offering is you could work through everything in a couple of hours or spend a couple months getting into the deals, and even re-do everything as your ideas change.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Robert Maj - 7 months ago

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Navdeep Kaur - 7 months ago

“This course was full of amazing content and materials. The instructors/facilitators were totally engaging and responsive to questions, and the video modules were the most interesting and attention-grabbing e-learning I have ever experienced (and I've done a lot of e-training)! Kudos and many thanks for a very rich learning experience.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Kim Rogers - 7 months ago

“The course content and the delivery of it from Ash was outstanding! The curriculum was interesting, provoked thought, and made sense. Ash’s personal anecdotes added context to each of the modules. Ash makes you believe that starting and operating your own business is something anyone can be successful doing. I highly recommend this course!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Fred Polci - 7 months ago

“The detail in the course notes is extensive and was challenging at times. Ash and Nilay did a wonderful job or presenting this material to the large group giving real life examples that we could all understand. Kudos to you both. Having done all the reading and been present at the 6 lectures, I think that I am in a better position to understanding how to work with an entrepreneur.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Janice Maas - 7 months ago

“This a great program that brings together all of the parts and processes of Startup to help entrepreneurs learn from seasoned Vets. Having taken many of these courses this is the best on the topic. Interaction with other entrepreneurs could be richer but the expoure to Ash & Nilay makes up for it. Highly recommended !”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Hussain Ali-Khan - 2 months ago

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Yue Jiang - 3 months ago

“It is an amazing course that walks you through the journey. The content is very well organized and covers a lot of important information. Really appreciate and thank Ash and Nilay for putting together this course.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Jasbir N. Patel

“I came across this course at the right time when I started working on my new idea. I have had couple of attempts with very good ideas but I lacked the knowledge on building a startup and the details around the process. So when I talked to investors, I fell short and always looked unprepared. With this course, I have now got all the right tools and I am confident of making this venture a success. I can already see the difference on how I present the concept to people, how I have prepared all the required artifacts and it is all possible because of the knowledge acquired from this course. Ash and Nilay have built the course around their experience and it shows in the content. Simran has been very helpful and supportive throughout the process. Highly recommend this course for anyone starting a new venture.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Sanket Malo - 2 months ago

“An enjoyable and entertaining online course taught by co-professors Ash and Nilay. I appreciated their ability to infuse their contemporary business experiences through each stage of episodes. This course not only helps those wanting to create start-ups, but also helps those in roles that could build new product/program/service lines or new divisions in a company. Recommended for individuals who want to master a lifelong skill set that can be applied throughout your career.”

"My overall experience has been very positive. I think it is a very strong network. There were fantastic founders to work with. And I felt very fortunate to have had my mentor, who's been a great help both within the accelerator program and also on the side. Having done a couple of accelerator programs before, I find that Hyper Accelerator does scheduling incredibly well. I found that there were opportunities for pitch, plenty of opportunities for feedback, and at the same time you're getting toward the absolute fundamentals and the needs and musts that aren't done in other accelerator programs."

Hiep Do, founder of Nebula Accounting

September 2022 Cohort

"The program has been an amazing experience. I've been taught and advised on so many things I have missed in the previous accelerators program that I've been on. And also, the experience provided me not just from a business perspective but also from an academic perspective as well, and I found that really helpful not only for me as the founder of a business but also for me as a master's student as well. I use a lot of the experience I've learned to bring it not just to the workplace but also to my academic journey. The team has also been great. Everything is always on time. Everyone is really lovely, really get to the point as well, and really trying to really help us with everything."

Rachaelle Rempe, founder of Auraiha

September 2022 Cohort

"The overall experience of this cohort has been absolutely amazing. I have met so many interesting and amazing founders with such great ideas and always come to the peer-to-peer sessions with positivity. Also, the actual training and teaching of this cohort are so exciting. Every day that you're part of the group, you learn something new, and is overall just a really amazing experience with Professor Ash and also with everyone else that is onboard. His team is super nice and the mentors are really amazing and they always give really great feedback. The best advice that I could give you guys is to just come prepared, don't come empty-handed. Anything that you have or wanna share is always welcome. Do your homework and make sure that you can get the most out of this course. Good luck with your cohort and I am excited to hear about your pitch day. Have a good one."

Dugan Schwalm, co-founder of CatalystXL

September 2022 Cohort

"It has been a great experience. Ash and the whole team have been great to work with. The materials have been very helpful in getting us organized using the frameworks and figuring out what to focus on and what not to focus on. I feel like our company over just the 10 weeks in Hyper Accelerator has transformed and we're excited to close out 2022, graduate from the program and use what we've learned and apply it in 2023."

“The Hyper Accelerator course is the best thing that we have done for our business. Our team has decades of business experience going into the program, but what we learned in the HyperAccelerator100 days is transformative and invaluable. It is an extraordinary opportunity to have access to the decades of professional experience and knowledge encapsulated in the coursework, and to the personal knowledge and experience of the Accelerator course leaders. The course leaders are smart, sharp, engaging, and are committed to the success of each participant. This really comes through in the one-on-one mentoring sessions. We now have the tools with which to not just successfully launch a new business, but to grow that business and realize its full potential.”
