When I relocated to Nashville, I decided to sign-up for PreFlight. Best decision I've ever made as an entrepreneur. I started the program not knowing anyone. I graduated from PreFlight with a rich ecosystem of professional relationships, accelerated opportunities, and a group of people who have become my friends. PreFlight not only helped me build my business, it also helped me build a happy life in my new home city. -Kristian Rickard

Preflight provides you with the fundamental roadmap to developing a successful business. The biggest value was the amount of time PreFlight saved me figuring out what to do to start a business. My biggest takeaway was the confidence to pursue my business full-time. -Paul McNeil

I’m so glad I didn’t have to start my entrepreneurial journey without PreFlight. It allowed our group of like-minded entrepreneurs to get to the point faster. Without PreFlight, I would not have been able to access such condensed and pinpointed information on starting a business in such a short amount of time. -Ayumi Bennett
