Recent feedback on the support includes: “What The Cube is doing is phenomenal. The deep insights that speakers bring to the webinars really help. The team that is selecting the speakers is doing a great job. Before Plymouth, I had spent 3–4 years in the entrepreneurship space and finding this type of realistic and practical insight is tough. I learned a great deal about entrepreneurship, thanks to The Cube.”
