"I attended Startup Bootkamp in Miami. Not only was Phil super accommodating in terms of me signing up last second (squeezing me in), but the workshop also went above and beyond creating a community for the fledgling entrepreneurs who attended. Phil brought in a huge amount of relevant content, answered every question with thoughtfulness, and offered his attendees to review their ideas after the fact. This was NOT some generic info session - this was a quality boot camp introduction to the world of startups and navigating that world."

"Startup Bootkamp was a fantastic introduction to startups for anyone, whether you are new to the space or have some experience and want a refresher. It's Phil's personal experience that colors everything about his session. This is something that you cannot find in a classroom or in an office, and what ultimately distinguishes Startup Bootkamp from any other offering out there. Speaking for myself, I was able to crystallize a serious business idea and start taking serious steps because of Phil. Thank you!"
