What benefits have other entrepreneurs received?

Startti Plus 3.0 ja asiakastyytyväisyys

Our team has long experience in helping start-ups and growing companies to develop their sales and marketing. Our customers are truly important to us, and we get great feedback:

”I received a lot of help in the twists and turns with sales. As an entrepreneur, I am an expert in my field, but not a sales expert. However, when working as an entrepreneur, you have many hats and roles at the same time, and you need help from time to time to joggle them. I have received sales sparring – and a lot of support and confirmation, and concrete ideas. I appreciate the coach’s way of communicating openly and without fuss. They listened with a really sensitive ear and grasped well even the smaller, but oh so essential things.”

”My direction is clear now and it is easy to develop the operations little by little over time. The fact that we agreed on a follow-up meeting was also really important. As well as that I get feedback when I implement new marketing ideas in practice.”

”The coach had a really nice style of leading the conversation and the dynamics worked well! A very knowledgeable and attentive consultant :)”

”Our meetings brought plenty of insights and new ideas! I am very satisfied and I warmly recommend the service to any entrepreneur.”
