"Aaron - Excellent presentation! Every one of the teams came out of it excited and motivated to get to work. And I think you nailed the Lean methodology and MVP just right for the budding startups we had in the room. Several teams successfully incorporated the tips you taught them into their final pitches; made for a great pitch competition." ~ Lean Startup Machine

"Entrepreneurial efficacy is something I read about in literature but hadn't experienced in conversations until I recorded your mentoring sessions with startups. This efficacy was quite obvious in your mentoring." ~ Ben Farahmand, Founder, Enterpreneurial Learning Network
