Testimonials from Partners
At Icebreaker we understand the importance of running events like Digital Prototyping Week and were pleased to partner with The Shortcut to deliver it. Not only did we get to support some great business ideas but the workshop helped increase our company’s visibility amongst Finland’s future founders. Would highly recommend it.
We were co-organizer in The Shortcut's School of Startups event. One of our teachers gave a workshop. It was a painless experience. The Shortcut Team was well organised and available to answer any questions that we had. Thank you.
We co-created and sponsored a 10 week data science program with The Shortcut in 2019. The experience was painless. We led the development of the curriculum and taught some of the sessions, while The Shortcut helped recruit additional instructors, handled recruitment and screening of students, managed evaluations, and provided their versatile office space. The program was a true success. We increased our company visibility amongst the startup ecosystem and successfully trained a cohort of skilled Junior Data Scientists!
Truly have a great relationship with The Shortcut having co-created 5 workshops with them in the past. Recently we worked with them as part of School of Startups. We were impressed by the event concept and the energy of the crowd. Some of our speakers had not spoken at an event this big before, so it was an invaluable experience for them too.
The Shortcut has been a trusted service provider for several years. The Team is easy to work with and their training programs have proven to increase participant employability. The Shortcut has an active and supportive community that encourages participants to continue their learning outside of core training hours. We'd highly recommend them as a service provider.
