What startups founders say about our program

“What might’ve taken 3 months to do, might be possible in 2-3 days. Remarkable has made us go a lot faster.”

– Max Burt, WheelEasy, Cohort #2

“The Remarkable Accelerator has had a massive impact on us. We went in as a few people with a semi-good idea, and came out a lean, focused and investment ready social enterprise with a killer pitch.

Highly recommended if you’re serious about taking your social enterprise to the next level!”

– Mel Fuller & Johan du Plessis, AbilityMate, Cohort #1
