The timing of every coaching session was wonderful, training materials were fitting for me and I can now tell anyone what I do, what I plan to do and the outcomes with in less than 3 minutes. And more so, I know the different types of pitches and pitch presentation materials to use depending on what story I want to portray to my audience.

Kudos to the entire Centum Learning and AGRIHACK team for having taken us through the online training successfully.
I would like to formally and sincerely express my gratitude for the amazing Agripreneur training program I accomplished last week as a team leader Akaboxi limited company Kampala Uganda.

The Mentorship Support Trainings with resource individuals at Centum Learning were incredibly helpful. Sessions where trainers de-constructed my business model to understand my business showed me areas that might be of strong interest to investors.

The platform Centum Xelerate was so easy to download, it has exciting features, and it’s easy to navigate through the modules. The background music was so exciting. I also liked the voice over in the videos. I also like the idea of self-learning modules because I could take the course in my own free time.
