“My dream of being an entrepreneur became reality through Crack the Funding Code. I learned more about running a business than at any time during my MBA program. With not even knowing what a pitch deck was and never having met an investor, I had a long way to go to get funded. John, Judy and Dee took me from the state I was in to getting in front of investors, developing an incredible pitch deck and getting my business ready for growth. I have received funding from one investment group and am now going through due diligence with the NY Angels.”

Cole Smith, Founder & CEO – Tresit Group
