"Grdient gave me a bird's eye view of the startup ecosystem in South East Asia. The opportunity to interact with and learn from experienced startup professionals through intimate fireside chats was invaluable.
Getting connected to my awesome mentor through the program was the icing on the cake!"
Growth at Carousell, ex-Mckinsey, INSEAD MBA
"As a University undergraduate, we rarely get exposed to how growth-stage startups plan and execute their customer acquisition strategies.
Grdient provided me with great insights into the Startup scene and familiarised me with how startups think about marketing-qualified leads vs sales-qualified leads.
The Mentors and Instructors helped me get up to speed on knowledge that would have been difficult to acquire otherwise!"
Business Development at SmartBuildAsia, SMU Undergrad
"The skills and tools that I learnt from classes enabled me to be more effective at a startup than I thought possible. Working in a dynamic and fast-changing startup environment is vastly different from working in a multinational company. We have to make things happen in a big way with few to no resources.
Without the headstart from the classes it would have been much difficult to perform in my internship."
Operations at Ninjavan, ex-PwC and Strategy Consultant
"Grdient opened up my eyes to the world of tech startups. There was a variety of modules aimed at giving us a wide spectrum of skills - from fireside chats with startup practitioners at Alibaba, Uber, Google, Grab and PropertyGuru to technical workshops on Digital Marketing and Analytics.
The access to an awesome mentor during my internship was extremely valuable to my development as well."
Strategy at BankBazaar, ex-Accenture
"I worked in a large corporate before attending Grdient's classes. During the Bootcamp, I quickly gained insights into how tech startups operate. The Bootcamp was a crash course in the skills required for success at a startup - I think the most valuable takeaway was the peer network that I gained. This is a network I can tap on in times of need.
The hands-on program of the Bootcamp compliments the classroom and strategy-focused education during my MBA at INSEAD - solidifying my foundation for success in the startup world."
