WHAT YOU'RE SAYING

The five (5) weeks of the SHIFT Enterprise Academy were so great. We started with 17 Enterprisers and I was among the top four (4). I was able to pitch my e-commerce idea - SHIFT Serenity Tours for the very first time.

I believe the interactive sessions are more important than the seed money, because the business skills and knowledge gained in the weekly sessions can make a positive impact on our lives, if implemented.
