“The SPRINT programme has changed my business in every way. Before we started the course we were given a Business Model Canvas (BMC) to complete which really helped me take a helicopter view of my business. We tackled the BMC on the first day and I now have it hanging on my office wall. It has really helped me focus. As a result of doing the SPRINT programme in the GEC (Guinness Enterprise Centre), I ended up taking an office there which has proven to be really beneficial to my company. It’s an unbelievable environment to be in.I would sincerely like to thank Enterprise Ireland and Dublin BIC/SPRINT for having me on this course. Its a must for any HPSU company in order to take their business to the next level.”

“The HPSU SPRINT programme was very beneficial for me and my company.  The overall content was very focused on providing excellent content and practical advice in the key areas such as; defining and challenging the Business Model, Competitor and Market Analysis, Value proposition, Sales, Business Plan, Finance and creating an investor pitch. There was a good balance between instructor-led workshops and peer-to-peer exercises which were very productive and enabled us to discuss issues in an open group environment with people in a similar situation.  The course also provides an excellent opportunity to network with the wide variety of other companies participating in programme, and to meet people from Enterprise Ireland, Dublin BIC and HBAN.”

“”The SPRINT programme has been invaluable for giving us real focus within the business, and accelerating us to revenue stage. The programme was much more interactive and engaging than any other programme I’d been on before. Each topic was discussed in relevance to our business and this is what made it so beneficial. The location for the programme being in the GEC was also fantastic and led us to taking our own office space in the GEC.”
