        Ramp Corp is a phenomenal program that guides fledgling entrepreneurs in the creation of their own start-up companies. The program offers outstanding one-on-one mentorship and networking opportunities on the development of a business model, marketing strategy, product development timeline, finance options, IP issues and presentation skills. This program is unique in that it offers a supportive peer network of successful female entrepreneurs and potential strategic partners.

        RampCorp is an exceptional program from start to finish. It offers invaluable business training for women at any stage in her business. The EIR's are experienced and dedicated. The cohort is beyond compare. The class panelists are successful entrepreneurs with significant business acumen. The encouragement and support are second to none. The peer-to-peer connections are unparalleled. RampCorp is indeed in a class of its own and it is an honor and a privilege to be a member of such an accomplished group of women.

        The mentorship alone is more than worth the price of the program, but the curriculum, growth opportunities and community of like-minded women make this program a bargain for any woman on her entrepreneurial journey.

        I am honored to be part of this group. And my biotech startup will be at the same conference as the one where this award will be announced. TeVido BioDevices is one of the "Best University Startups" and will be in the showcase.

        Rampcorp is an amazing program that gives women the information and skills they need to be successful in any business or professional enterprise. The coaches and experienced businesswomen who serve as mentors are top notch, and Terry Chase Hazell is a totally engaging and energizing leader!

        RampCorp provided the skillset, knowledge and ecosystem that were critical to my success. I have benefited greatly from going through the program and remaining active as an alumna. I have and continue to witness the transformations that occur in the businesses and lives of women entrepreneurs in each session. Completing this program enabled me to further develop, refine and hone elements that were essential for my success. Two thumbs up! RampCorp has my vote!

        This program is top notch! The content, coaches, guest speakers and participants are outstanding. I learned significantly more about starting a business from this program than I did from my Ivy League MBA classes.

        I know of no other program that has the robust curriculum, quality mentors and incredible extended network. This program has no equal.
