What others say about us

    Sting gave us great support in our fundraising process, from investor introductions to the final details of the termsheet. The coaches have been our strategic sounding board and the overall support has been invaluable.

    Fredrika Bernadotte, Prion

    What might have taken two years, we now did in less than one year. A lot has happened, and Sting has been a large part of that journey.

    Anna Jenelius, Valiant Games Studio

    The coaches guide and help you find the way forward, they don’t tell you what to do. In the end, I’m the one who makes the decisions.

    Christina Lundbäck, Surfcleaner
