    I am so grateful for my time at YEDI. It’s remarkable that a program like this even exists and helps entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey. Our cohort all came from such diverse backgrounds (some have training in business, and others just instinct. But yet, the curriculum is so accessible, and Oleg, Marat and Ric and the guest teachers make sure the subject matter is relevant and easy to grasp. I know I’ve looked forward to every Wednesday evening for the past 16 weeks, and I’m sad to see it end, but I’m excited for the new tools I have to run my business.

    YEDI is such a great program. If you are like me, knowing nothing about business, this is a perfect place to start. I am learning every class and every meeting with the advisors. I met so many like minded people in class which helped me a lot as well. Going through the YEDI program definitely made me more confident and clearer about the future path of my venture.
