Hear from a couple past participants below.
“Anyone that has a type of business and wants to see it succeed, you need to be here. There’s so many things that we didn't even know until we got here that they really helped establish what it takes to be a successful business. We don’t have holes in our business plan now.”
“Competing in the Trout Tank is not just about getting in front of lenders and investors...it’s about the process of distilling your vision down to 10 to 15 slides and communicating your dream in a compelling fashion in five minutes. The most valuable part of the entire process is the journey you take to get yourself prepared. Give yourself and your business the gift of playing full out.”
