Our Mission

Founder Testimonial

[The BETA] accelerator program has been a tremendous asset to the IsoBlack team in terms of strategy, networking, and creating infrastructure... from day one the BETA team,  the other entrepreneurs, and subject experts were quick to offer their support and advice in dealing with day-to-day challenges of running a startup.
