SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE:

IT'S TIME TO TURN YOUR IDEA INTO REALITY.

Before PreFlight I was confused on who my actual customer was. After the first few classes, I realized exactly who my customer was and who the users were. You can have ideas that you think are good but until someone says they will pay for it you don’t have validation to your idea. The resources given to me in PreFlight have allowed me to dig deeper and have quick validation of my idea.
