Our experience with CBaSE was nothing short of exceptional. The students went above and beyond on the project and the team at CBaSE was fantastic to work with as well. Our goal for the four months was to research a potential industry that we had yet to penetrate. The team at CBaSE led this project and delivered great results. We are planning to do more projects with CBaSE in the coming semesters and would recommend them to any business.
