"Meeting George at Techstars was a game changer for me in my early days as a venture scale founder. Having come from a background of bootstrapping, his mentorship was indispensable and his real-world experience and success provide unparalleled guidance. As George launches his own accelerator, I am thrilled for those who will benefit from his mentorship just as I did. I am confident he will continue to be a pivotal figure in guiding future entrepreneurs towards success." - Colleen Hilton (Techstars '22)

"We're lucky to have met George during Techstars and have him as a mentor and advisor for our company! He's been helpful with everything from giving feedback on our app to preparing us for demo day & fundraising." - Gary Tokman (Techstars '22)
