Welcome to this members-only professional event with focus on cooperation between cooperation and start-ups.

Partnerships between start-ups and enterprises can be fruitful for both parties. What characterises a good, win-win cooperation? When should start-ups and enterprises collaborate – and when should they not? How to create platforms and structures to create synergies?
