Kye Bartel CEO at Project MIN

Runway being a relatively new kid on the block isn't holding them back from creating a lasting impression.
Drove the distance from Melbourne out to Runway HQ- Geelong for a Pozible information workshop which showcased the extraordinary and high-end space they've created & developed, sparing no expense and not cutting corners or providing substandard environments to facilitate the next step for brand new ventures. It's evident this crew know there stuff, after joining an information session in decadent style at a prime city location generously hosted by their key partners pwc (Price Waterhouse Coopers) it's become clear of their understanding for brand alliances and fostering key partnerships, I'm suitably impressed.
All my experiences so far have been positive and it's rare to find an organisation that peaks my interest on what they know, I feel there is much more to learn in life, so much so that I'm intrigued enough to consider getting on-board & applying for the upcoming Bootcamp
