All the information in the program is definitely helpful. I remember when Ruslan talked about underlying motives in companies. There is an underlying motive of power like at Apple, there is involvement like at Google, and achievement like at Netflix. We met with guys who work at Google, Netflix, and they were talking about how relationships between employees are built: how they give tasks, how they're supervised. Now I understand that there's really an underlying motivation that can be traced back to the whole organizational structure. This knowledge was absolutely new to me.

I was in this program a year ago, but I feel like I did not learn the information well enough, so I decided to come again. I am interested in the motivation and new ways of building organizations. I would like to understand venture capital - how the market is structured, how everything involved works. We as entrepreneurs do many things intuitively, but the knowledge here has been structured for decades, there is a methodology.
Elnur, USA
Every program meeting was different. We met with the employees, directors and top managers of the companies and we learned about management. We also talked to investors who invest in startups. We visited Stanford University, which I looked at from a new perspective. I found out that you cannot mix different business approaches - many companies try to take approaches from Google, Amazon and Apple and mix them, taking something from one company and something from another. This does not work, because the underlying motivations are completely different. You need to understand what the corporate culture is based on.
Alex, USA
The program gave us a lot of insights, new acquaintances, ideas. We recommend it to all entrepreneurs who want to grow and develop their business.…

In the program, I realized that communication with entrepreneurs and experts who work in another country is an opportunity to gain new experience and be inspired.
Andrew, Cyprus
It is good to come here to gain determination and courage to create something unusual. Looking at this acceptance of all oddities, at the enthusiasm, at the raging ocean, standing on a high hill, you want to take a deep breath and start believing that the impossible is possible.
Tatiana, Germany
Now we implemented Jira and everything works like a clock. The team stays very involved. I did not expect that in a couple of months we would be able to implement so many things. At the same time we learned how to work remotely. Before I always knew that I couldn't work remotely, but now I do it smoothly everyday. Previously I did not know how to do it, but now I can work from any corner of the world. If someone wants to be more productive and get better results, the tools I learned here really help.
Oleg Sadovsky, Ukraine
This is my second time on the program. This is a completely different program than the one five years ago. We talked with many startup founders, engineers and investors. The most important thing that these meetings gave me was learning how people think here, because when you listen to these people, it's not money that motivates them. Money is of second importance for them. They're thinking about how to improve the world, how to help millions of people.
I've been immersed in the subject of investing for quite some time. At the program I learned how they approach the project selection, what are the ways funds are structured, how do they invest, which startups are more and less likely to become unicorns, what traits to seek in a startup founder or his team, which platforms to use to find projects, what funds’ projects funnel looks like. Because there's a lot of noise on the market, it was useful to learn how they seek and discover their “diamonds”.
Dmitry, Indonesia
The program is mindblowing. This is the first time in my life that I've spent so much time with a group of individuals where I've learned so much. For example, I now have a clear understanding of what I need to do in order to get funding. I can easily start right now because getting investment is an assessment of how well you understand your mission. If you know what you want to do, if you are honest with yourself, the investor feels it and would be ready to support your project with their money.
I am afraid to recommend this course to my team because they would leave the company to start building their own startups.
