What are people saying about Startup Quest®?
“I realized that I needed to be part of an environment of entrepreneurs. I intentionally wanted to put myself and surround myself with like-minded people who really were somewhat in a similar situation but wanted to do something and to take ownership of essentially their destiny.”
− RONALD HERBAS, Startup Quest® participant and entrepreneur
