“What the team has conquered during the program would probably take months to happen in the traditional way. The acceleration program provided us with a great opportunity to rethink the business. The connections made during and after the program are also as valuable as the acceleration program.” (Andrei Grespan, Tarvos Executive Director)

“AgroStart was very enriching. Accelerations presented relevant content to structure the business and BASF opened the doors to the market, in addition to providing focuses mentoring. During the program, we were able to better understand our market, meet customers and increase revenue in a sustainable manner. I recommend!" (Eduardo Goerl, CEO ARPAC)
