Giulio Tanganelli

Lucia from the BD School has been a wonderful teacher and helper in many ways. A lot of eye-opening moments and insightful teachings into how I can improve our inbound leads, outbound emails, and gave me an in depth understanding as to how to create buyer personas. I've already seen the effects her classes have given, not only our day-to-day handling, but also how we tackle larger discussions. Thank you for your time, and you always supplied great energies! Thank you, BD School

If it wasn't for the system that Lucia at the BD school provided me with, I would not have started as strong as I did on this new career path! Just do the course, you won't regret it!

Nathaly Tapia

Best teacher ever! If you are excited about your business idea and you want to make it come true (without failing in the try) this is the right place to start. I love that Lucia is passionate about your company as if it was hers, so she will give you the best tips and advice that many books don't have. Their culture is to learn and try in real life which is very exciting and convenient since I have saved a lot of money by avoiding common mistakes when opening my first company. Surely the value you pay is 10 times worth it. Thanks to the BD school my team and I won the Phillips contest which gave us a start funding amount of money to continue with our company.

“The sessions were clear, dense, with additional pointers, and left us with an actionable framework that we will not only be able to use, but to replicate in the future.”
