"We weren't really understanding our customers very well. Startup Circles helped us to really knuckle down and understand who we were selling to and what are we selling."

"What Pranary offers is something that is so unique in the market, especially for entrepreneurs that want to grow and scale businesses."

Claudia Castellanos
"I would say Pranary is like a guide, a tool kit an entrepreneur needs to ensure that they can enact on their growth strategy and really ensure real impact."

Evelyn Chilomo Kaingu
"I absolutely love what Pranary is about. It’s a practical school for entrepreneurs. No writing, no theories, more about what exactly is needed to get you to the next level and to get you funding that you need."

"During the programme you learn to put together a very well-focused pitch deck. You get a chance to present to people so you can get feedback and refine it. Right at the end of the course there is the opportunity to pitch seriously to the investors. They were happy with my pitch and said they wanted to work with me."

"In the four years of building my company, attending a number of programs and pivoting 5 times, nobody has given my team and I half the knowledge we have received from Startup Circles in the last 4 weeks." 

GASTA KEVIN
"Startup Launch has introduced our team to a community of brilliant, like-minded entrepreneurs, from across the continent, with whom we’re exchanging a wealth of knowledge and experiences in the entrepreneurship journey."

S'BU Msimango
"I was part of the Y Combinator Startup School this January and I still feel I am gaining more at Startup Circles than at YC cohort. I think the reason is because we get to talk to Sandras and mentors directly, as well as other Entrepreneurs."

"After going through Startup Circles my perception changed. I got lessons from founders of companies and investors explained clearly what they were looking for. Sandras, Nicole and the team were very helpful and knowledgeable. And the support from the community is incredible. In fact. This course is one of the best investments I’ve ever made."

Queen Ndlovu
"At Startup Circles I received encouragement and hope when things were not going well. You taught me about business. The journey of entrepreneurship is not easy, but I've learned a lot and I'm grateful for this. Recently I managed to raise investment. You taught me how to do this. I've learned stuff which will never be taught in schools. I've learned so many things."

Munyaradzi Dzvene
“I must say the team has given me the direction on what we actually needed to focus on more. The current pandemic set back our MVP, but with feedback from the program we have restructured our value proposition and aligned on our target customers, and are testing it now."
