Investment Ready Program feels like a complete MBA in 4 intense masterclasses. I faced and conquered my shortcomings, learned to use important tools and it helped me persevere. I still benefit from this experience. The Dutch Weed Burger is doing very well. We’ve increased the number of outlets and have recently opened our own restaurant!
