Within our four month partnership program, we will run a proof of concept project with the participants in order to improve their product, to evaluate how to gain traction and how to start to scale internationally (focus on CEE).
After the first batch, we will evaluate the potential of a possible further cooperation together with the startups. Therefore, our partnership program has the potential to be a stepping stone to reach a significant new market via our extensive network.
