    What our members say

  • "I gained really interesting insights into some vital things to consider at the beginning of thinking about building a technology platform, such as researching the market and competition (vital to mitigate against choosing a competitive market to operate in which could be fatal to the business further down the line). Additionally it was motivational being on the same call as other app/platform developers to hear about their successes and problems and how they solved them - was good to get the feeling that I am in the same boat!". Prem, founder in EduTech.

  • "The session with Stuart was well formulated and the advice was given in a way that I can apply it to my upcoming projects to reduce the risk of wasting time and money and consequently make the project successful.". Karel, serial entrepreneur.

  • "Stuart is a perfect mentor when it comes to providing you with guidance to kick start or grow your software business. I wish I had access to the academy sooner, it would have saved me a lot of time and effort. My favourite part is when he talks about the right time to pitch to investors and how to prepare for the pitch.". Alex, founder in MedTech
