Sameer Patel
Sameer Patel 
CEO, Kahuna Software 

"We would have brought Chris and Blitzscaling Ventures into our B round if they were investing then. I was craving a well-articulated framework to guide my team’s decision-making as we scale. There is nothing like this out there today."

Bill Gates

CEO, Valuer.ai 

"We partnered with Global Scaling academy because Valuer's corporate customers asked us to support them in building corporate-startup partnerships and scaling them. They're the only group out there with an up-to-date approach to scaling and the global reach we needed."

Alex Fielding

"My other VC investors might push back, but I will pry open our next round, or find some secondary shares to get Chris and his team involved here."

Timi Koleolu

Founder, Kaya Africa

"I attended The Global Scaling Academy led by Chris and Jeff in Doha last year. I have to say most of the things I learnt and applied to my Startup led to the growth and stability we have experienced. Jeff and Chris’ deep insights into issues facing companies and their ability to dissect problems made the program very useful. It was definitely worthwhile!"

Saurabh Gupta
Saurabh Gupta
CEO, Verismart

"GSA helps founders and prevents them from making the conventional mistakes that 97% of founders make. Their sessions are so insightful that altogether founders like me experience a new perspective and bigger vision about their own venture. They are always up for a quick chat and offer founder-friendly advise. I am happy that I get to learn from the industry's best."

Corey Schwartz

President, Loanatik

"Jeff is a fantastic networker, consummate entrepreneur and all around great guy. He's the guy you want to go out drinking with and have with you working through difficult business problems. His instincts are dead on and he doesn't hesitate to make introductions to people that may help you in business or life. If you have the opportunity to connect with him on any level, do it."

John McEntire
John McEntire
Director of Industry Development and Knowledge Transfer at Qatar Foundation

"The Research to Startup Program we run with Global Scaling Academy is such a unique thing. It's been really important that we have this type of mechanism and for a technology transfer office this is a dream come true because we have so much activity coming in that I don't know how we are going to hang on to all the licensing activity--and that's a really great problem to have."

Hedi Krönstrom
Hedi Krönstrom
Accelerator Director,  European Innovation Academy

"I worked with Jeff at the European Innovation Academy where he was the head of 80+ mentors. There are a lot of moving parts to managing an accelerator on this scale, and Jeff did a great job, always keeping cool and organized. He is attentive to detail, creative and has a keen eye to the advanced mentoring of startup teams. These abilities coupled with his natural and warm communication skills makes Jeff a precious asset to any complex project."

Adam Olejniczak
Adam Olejniczak
CEO, Ryde-on

"I participated in a GSA accelerator. The program and mentorship made me grow as an entrepreneur. Jeff was one of the best mentors and connectors that I have ever worked with. He generously shared his time and knowledge -- it was never too early or too late in the day. Having someone so supportive when you are a founder is incredibly important. I could not recommend anyone more sincerely. I feel like a large part of my success is their work."

Mart Maasik
Mart Maasik
Co-Founder SEB Innovation Lab

"It has been truly inspirational to collaborate with Jeff and Chris. Jeff's broad experience, knowledge across the industries, understanding the US and European business growth context has enabled us to define business models shifts and scaling opportunities. Jeff's mentoring and Chris's Blitzscaling advisory framework are highly practical and actionable - they help identify impactful strategical growth opportunities for corporate innovators and as well scale-ups."

"In my program, the GSA team worked with entrepreneurs from 17 countries. Through the curated group sessions and thought-provoking presentations the GSA mentors ignited creative collaboration. The knowledge, network, and connections with investors, technologists, and researchers from different corners of the world provided a full-spectrum of invaluable entrepreneurial exchange to spur innovation."

José Rafael Campino
José Rafael Campino
CEO Gauss Control (Chile)

"The GSA program was eye opening for us. Through online sessions, with amazing mentors, I was able to understand the concepts of scaling our business internationally. The main conclusions was that we needed to expand our market size; so we re-defined our vision and we adapted our product to it. Nowadays, Gauss Control has landed several big mining clients around Latin America and identified huge expansion potential around the world. Thanks Jeff & Chris!"
