Tips from Big Booster community

  • A fellow founder: Grab any opportunity that presents itself to pitch your startup in front of selected foreign investors. Big Booster allowed me to do so and it saved a lot of time! Doing so will give you a better idea on what’s realistic and attainable, and what may take more time to achieve.
  • A fellow founder: I know it’s hard but we need to find a way to keep our strategic head above water! Having to dedicate 3 entire days to our pitch during the Boston Booster Camp will definitely be a major asset on the long run!
  • A mentor: An easy one we often forget: share information on your startup with people related (or not) to your industry, find a way to surround yourself with ones with whom you can trade skills and share ideas with. Or just simply talk about what’s on your mind! That’s a major asset of Big Booster!
