Hear from the entrepreneurs

Loic Hares

Resilience Energy

Bootcamp makes crowdfunding so much easier. You are taken out of the business for only a week and I am learning so much about how to promote my business. The team helped me shoot my video, design my banner images and write my Crowdcube pitch. I'd highly recommend it to any founder that's looking to crowdfund!

One Year No Beer

I'm so glad I did Bootcamp with TribeFirst - they're awesome! I didn't even know where to get started, but they took me from a blank page to a fully designed and written deck and exec summary in weeks. We sent just one email to our network. With a bit of LinkedIn marketing, and we found serious investors to take us forward.

Within three weeks time, we managed to finetune our brand and amend our touchpoints such as website, investment decks and messaging. That made a huge internal and external impact, as it immediately provided clear brand direction to our team as well as to clients and investors.
