“In Top Class I met with many high-impact entrepreneurs and gained valuable insights from the speakers, mentors, and fellow participants”, says Armen Grigoryan, Director of Development of Armenia Travel Company. His decision to participation in the program was based on the recommendation of Armenia Travel’s CEO who participated in Top Class the previous year.
“In addition to meeting entrepreneurs from Armenia, I had a chance to meet entrepreneurs and investors from over 10 counties at one of the CEED international events that took place in May 2013 in Zagreb, Croatia. It was not only an opportunity to network and establish contacts with potential partners, but also to hear from such accomplished business leaders as Bob Rosenschein, the founder of Answers.com, and Jim Connor, a Board Director and Treasurer of the Sand Hill Angels, a group of successful Silicon Valley executives and accredited investors.
The Top Class experience created an opportunity to consider cutting-edge ideas and discuss various challenges and opportunities with mentors. One of the takeaways for me was to focus on innovation both in our product development and in operations management. I believe it is the only way to success.”
