StartupDevKit has helped me to get on the right track, stay focused on my business, and avoid mistakes I would have made on my own. The platform is easy to use and there’s so much quality content in the blog and incubator platform – it’s really great. I’m happy I decided to work with Carl at StartupDevKit.” — Reza Salatini, Founder and CEO, Clever Calories
“As gaming development studio that started in mid-2018, it was hard finding people who believed in us and our vision. We stumbled upon StartupDevKit and Carl after looking around for startup mentoring platforms. Carl told us upfront he wasn’t overly familiar with the VR industry, but said he could still provide us with meaningful support and expert knowledge. Within 3 months we were happy to say he was right. Not only has he given us great advice but he’s also helped to keep the team motivated and focused. Fast forward to 2022 where we have continued to get mentoring from Carl ever since then. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with Carl and watching StartupDevKit help you too.”  – The Team at DVNC, DVNC Tech, LLC
