Rozetta Institute iPhD graduate

“RoZetta is my Formula 1 team. When I fed our data over into the Rozetta environment, they saw things we didn’t see because we weren’t looking for the things they were looking for. The iPhD Program let us tap youth – they think outside the box because there is no box! The Program is very well done – they matched the skill set that we were looking for with our business needs”
