Clinishare gained a huge amount from being part of Start Planet. During the process, we turned our job positions from part time to full time, expanded the knowledge and the size of the team, and got ourselves investment ready in a way we could only have dreamed of the year previous. We also raised the capital we needed to take our vision from concept to reality.
