TheFactory offers an impressive collection of motivated people that will kick start your business idea.
— Torbjørn Sortland - Business Owner, Safe Design
Most accelerators offer a lot of the same things to startups over a 12-week period: a toolkit, money, and mentoring. But post-graduation companies are on their own, and this is where TheFactory stands out. TheFactory keeps introducing us to prospective investors, customers, get us on stage at events, and genuinely care about how we’re doing – long after program completion.
