„Leon changed my life!!! I took this course only two days before I had a pitch at a large venture capital firm. I did not know how to structure my presentation, never wrote a business plan and did not seem to understand what venture capitalists want from me. After only 1 1/2 hours of watching this course, i felt fully prepared. AND…the venture capital firm invested in my startup. Thank YOU SO SO MUCH LEON!!!!“

- (Steve T., MN, USA)
