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 BD School is a place to take BD courses if you are a BDeveloper or transition to it. Lucia has made what I call "individual focused learning". I have gained more knowledge and new tips that will help me succeed in my BD activities. Now I am a certified BD 😎. Thanks, Lucia the expert. Trust me guys, you won't regret once you join The BD School. Additionally, notethat you have an opportunity to also have an expert as your mentor after completing your courses.
