"Sprintbase offers just what we were looking for, especially amid a pandemic...a virtual platform to help our academic colleagues learn design and launch teams that are conducting innovative research for real world impact.

Sprintbase sales and support teams have been as impressive as the platform. Their coaches have customized onboarding with our colleagues in Uganda and Malawi with grace and skill. We're delighted to be in partnership!"

Valentin Grecu Lecturer, Innovation Labs Ambassador Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu
