“The PropertySpark team had a great time working at the GBC Incubator. Throughout our time there we were introduced to other great startup teams. Furthermore, we were given the opportunity to participate in startup events organized by the GBC. Thanks to all the staff and startups!”Sam Battista
“We feel very lucky to be part of GBC’s incubator program. It’s a space where ideas and vision and hard work intersect, a space where entrepreneurs can grow in a supported environment.
