I was blown away!

Michael Killik, Owner, Killik Hot Sauce Company

I signed up for the class and was blown away by what I didn’t know! In my opinion, it was the best money I spent in starting my company. Their willingness to share their knowledge and experiences saved me countless missteps (and money) along the way. I highly recommend this class to anybody looking to bring their product to market!
