Work Samples



The session helped the participants establish the core of their business strategy at the beginning of the programme and begin preparations for pitching at the demo day.

1-2-1 consultations two–three weeks after the workshop allowed the participants to further clarify their segmentation, tailor their value propositions, and set their companies for growth.

Polly Gibb

WiRE Director, Harper Adams University

"I thoroughly recommend Adopter. Matt and Katherine have great expertise and knowledge, combined with being extremely professional and keen to do a valuable and good job. They designed and delivered a training day for our agri-tech start-up accelerator, covering Value Proposition Canvas and effective customer interviews. The session was suited exactly to our needs, and we hope to work with them again."
