 Small Cohorts, Big Impact

The Fiterator is limited to 4-6 companies per cohort. This sharp focus allows us to customize the program for each team to ensure their individual success. The first half is centered around learning product fit while prepping for a presentation to crucial industry C-levels. We then laser focus on testing, negotiations, and closing deals.
