Martynas Kandzeras:

This Business Angel school features all the key topics that are essential for the business angel to successfully operate. I found it valuable since all the workshops are based on practical cases. Moreover, fireside chats with various professional business angels and other ecosystem members help to have a wider understanding of the startup and investment world. Best part? You get to test all the frameworks and new knowledge during the live startup pitching events. I do recommend this program to the newcomers, and to professional guys who want to renew their knowledge.
