Hear from previous Accelerator Lab™ clients

Here’s what past client partners had to say about our hands-on lab.

“My experience … was far and above what I had expected. The teams led effective discussions and provided guidance in a way that felt simple even though we were short on time to complete the work. I would recommend in a heartbeat.“

“The sessions really gave us time to clarify our thinking and build a compelling narrative around a huge organizational change, I am much more confident in our communications now than before!“

“The Duarte team is top-notch and their expertise and insights were critical in delivering executive keynotes that engaged and inspired the audience.“

“This was such a well orchestrated process [and] an effective use of our resources and time well spent. The outcome pitch deck that we jointly created is without a doubt orders of magnitude better than what we would have developed on our own.”

“Duarte was able to take a lot of ideas from a lot of personalities to help us build a presentation that really focused on the key benefits of our products and our company’s main mission to a specific group of customers. Well done!“

“Every start-up team can benefit from the value proposition and personal development exercises taught by Duarte.“
