What are past participants saying:

“I believe that Basecamp is a very important part of the startup ecosystem that until now, I felt may have been missing. For me it was the bridge of knowing what I am pitching to knowing who I am pitching to. I feel as though I now have a much better understanding of what exactly Angels are looking for and why! Basecamp is a crucial step in the learning process for startups who are considering or planning to pitch their business to investors!”
–James Daigle Founder, Ubiqweus Inc.

“I enjoyed BaseCamp immensely! The syllabus catered to the entrepreneurs within the class. It exceeded my expectations and Randy was fantastic!” –Diana Nguyen Lux Second Chance
