Start your business

Start your business at Ideon

Meet your customers as early on as possible. Ask them for feedback on the product, but remember that it’s not you they are criticising, it’s the product. And now you have a better understanding of what the customer wants.

Charlotta Falvin

CEO, TAT

Think big, feel that you can do it, engage people and get them involved, and act on it! And when you act, focus. Then focus, and then, focus. And make sure it works. The result of that will be success!
