Testimonials:

“I almost missed out on this amazing opportunity, but I’m so happy I didn’t!

Not only did I meet an amazing group of people that I got to work with for the 9 weeks, I learned more than I thought I would. The workshops were very helpful in building a strong basis for my business covering a ton of different topics. LeapIn was also a great networking opportunity, I made so many connections with people I probably never would have met otherwise.”
