"When we started, we were engineers. We had no business experience. Working through the program with the mentors gave us the confidence to grow our business knowing that whatever challenges we ran into, someone at the AC would be there to help us put the pieces of the puzzle together. They gave us the confidence to be successful."

Nadia Hamilton, CEO, Magnus Mode, GRADUATE

I feel they are part of a broader team, working together to build a foundation that will enable us to scale operations across North America and worldwide."
