"4thly Accelerator is a great, to-the-point no nonsense program for global start-ups willing to learn Silicon Valley style entrepreneurship and scale their businesses. The program was versatile with great expert speakers in key subjects who provided thorough knowledge and insights, great coaching from Bret!

They also provided some technical infrastructure such as cloud credits which is important for a business like ours. 4thly provided a great environment to learn from each other. They became our team in Silicon Valley! I strongly recommend 4thly to any startup that wants to grow faster. "

Abhishek Mohanty, Co-Founder
"Our startup had already gone through the Techstars accelerator program. We were contemplating whether we'd get enough value from going through another accelerator. In the end, we did end up signing up for the 4thly Digital Marketplaces program and we're so glad we did! With their deep knowledge and extensive experience with startups, they were able to give us insights that were specific and actionable for Liquid Diamonds. They helped us refocus on the basics i.e. understanding our customer needs. Not only did they help us structure our customer development interviews but they went over and above all our expectations in reaching out to potential customers on our behalf. Post program they've been great sounding boards and we are honored to have them onboard as our mentors. 4thly has been worth every penny and we highly recommend it to early stage startups! "
