The more people you meet, the faster you are scaling up
Building a company and make it scale up requires massive networking. The more people that can help you succeed, the better. So the more time you can find to step out of your office and create real relationships, the farther your startup or scaleup will go. In order to receive help, you need to be willing to help others.
Here are some of the many options for you to find ways to network, all over our park. More can be found in the Event Calendar »
“One of the most powerful networking practises is to provide immediate value to a new connection. The moment you identify a way to help someone, act on it. At Ideon Science Park we call this the Ideon way.”
