TESTIMONIAL

“I had read a little bit about vertical development and was anxious to learn more at the Incubator. What made the experience incredible was that Carl and Nick integrated the concepts into the program itself. There are heat generators, colliding perspectives, and reflection moments that help you not only learn, but experience what Vertical Development is all about.”
