  • After listening to your lectures, I have refocused, refined and reinvented what it is I want to do and how I can accomplish it…
  • I have been watching your video on business models and it is amazing. Thank you! You clearly have a wealth of knowledge and experience which has made me question my approach and think bigger picture about my core value and longer term objective.
  • I’ve gotten tremendous value and inspiration from the Startup Secrets series on Harvard iLab’s YouTube channel. Most lectures I’ve watched more than once. I feel like I’m downloading an information repository into my brain every time I watch one of the lectures.
  • I really appreciated Michael’s lecture at Harvard iLabs on Disruptive Business Models. Over the last couple of years, this is a lecture I keep coming back to.
  • I saw your Youtube video on Value Proposition (thought provoking) and realized that we are missing some vital thought-processes in our current startup.
  • I’ve been actively looking for something like this for a long time and nothing and this really seems miles apart from the rest, such good quality advice and structure. So many thanks for sharing all of your experiences

  • Thanks for the amazing lessons on Harvard i-lab’s YouTube! I found them very enriching and truly inspiring.
  • I cannot express how thankful I am really! My business is transforming and the big players are chasing after me. All thanks to listening to your lectures over hundreds of hours on Youtube and applying them. I was able to test and flip things where they didn’t work; tried new ways and I saw traction. Still growing though, but that the big players are requesting information from me means something special to me. I have been able to differentiate my company from others and strategies and tactics taught are now being applied on a daily basis.
  • Having watched your Harvard I-Labs videos, we have managed to gain great insights into starting our own business. The lectures were inspirational and reflect great integrity, knowledge and experience.
  • Thanks for all your teachings, they have been the single biggest contributor to company revenue…
  • I am an avid admirer of your work with Harvard. What I love most about your program is the clarity of thought that you bring to the workshops.
  • LOVE the program you have built… highly recommend this to new and serial entrepreneurs.
  • This is so great! Pure ecstasy for any entrepreneur.

  • Concepts like MVS, pain/gain ratio and 4U Need are pure gold

  • (Startup Secrets) has helped turn an 18 month long engagement with this brand into a contract that landed in my inbox last Monday and represents the initial phase of a full UK rollout for our technology with interest globally.

  • Thank you for all of the resources you have put in place for aspiring entrepreneurs such as myself. Two years ago I was commuting to a job that, although providing for my family, was merely passing the time. I had always aspired to start my own business, but it wasn’t until I came across your Startup Secrets videos that I felt empowered to take action. I cant wait to show you what you have inspired us to be capable of.
  • I learned more in thirty minutes than I did in months of isolated research! Your feedback helped me find some solid ground in key areas, and it also catalyzed/prioritized some crucial downstream decisions. Thank you.
