Here's what people are saying
“I'm a non-technical founder and this program encapsulates Stuart’s 30 years of technical knowledge. I love how it takes you through step-by-step covering everything that's needed. It’s incredibly useful and made me feel like I'm in control - I could see the roadmap ahead of me. It enabled me to work in an organised fashion, making sure nothing was missed out. If I hadn't done this, I wouldn't be where I am today with my startup. I could've had lots of problems on the way and I think this has saved me a lot of money. I would definitely recommend it! My advice: think about what you are planning to create and use this program to do it.
“We utterly relied on the information in this program to convert our ideas into requirements documentation and a fully functioning platform. We were nervous about project delay and product documentation. The efficiency of the process delighted us - producing high quality documentation. This allowed us to pivot to a second product with both investor, customer and team confidence. Building platforms from scratch is hard. Fun comes from seeing ideas manifest quickly and consistently. I recommended the program without exception.
Data analytics startup
“Our data start-up spin-off, has become a better proposition for investors due to his expert due diligence and advice regarding the tech stack. Stuart is the epitome of a professional – exuding knowledge, expertise and common sense in equal measure and taking a personal interest in the outcome of his recommendations. Consider yourself lucky if you are fortunate enough to engage his time on your program!
