Don't just take our word for it

“After going through the course I realized that 70% of the things we were working on in the business for the last few years were not creating long term value. I now have a clear EBITDA and valuation we are woking towards.”

Jim Fritz - CEO Kennedy Blue & The Wedding Shoppe

“During and after attending the boot camp, we clearly understood that our organization was not focused on the right things.”

Dave Girouard - CFO of Rack Processing

“Attending a boot camp gave me clarity on how to increase the value of my business and what I should be working on to create the options I want down the road.”

Ryan Blundell - CEO of Master Technology Group
