Emily Cheng
Co-Founder & CEO at MedVenture
Venture Out was a great next step for our company, MedVenture App! Learned about a lot of great fundamentals about business and entrepreneurship as first time founders. The structure and curriculum were exactly what we needed. Would recommend this program to any other founders!
Raja Mawad
Founder & CEO at Thrive
Not going to lie, this is not what I thought it was going to be but you have done something amazing. I have quite a few other entrepreneurs in startups that could greatly benefit from this. I attended “industry known” experts startup bootcamp for 20 hours. Not only was it not on the same level as’s a different game. It didn’t even hold a flame to VO and was 3x the price.

Co-Founder & CEO at Allio
We went from idea to 1.1 million dollar SAFE pre-seed funded company because Venture Out both incentivized and coached us into an early stage fintech corporation.
