Cut months off your sales cycle.
Over 70 Customer Sprint partners, including…
WHAT OUR FOUNDERS
HAVE TO SAY
We met with high level decision makers at places like IBX in rapid succession over the course of a few days. It would have taken us 6 months to schedule meetings with the same people on our own.
Matt Loper, Co-Founder of Wellth
We have benefited immensely from being part of Dreamit and are positioned much better than when we started. We are now starting our pilot at Penn Medicine and Baptist Health.
Hari Prasad, Founder of Yosi
Customer immersions at Dreamit allowed us short-cuts in our understanding of the market and accessing it, with respect to validation of value proposition and our suggested commercial models.
Eran Ofir, Founder of Somatix
Pitch U.S.-based investors in 1-on-1 meetings during week-long, bi-coastal Investor Sprints. Close your next round more quickly.
