Ideas development

Gathering active people interested in innovation and entrepreneurship, we hatch new ideas and projects.

Inside out: The impulse of new projects can come from our own network. We plant a seed and see what happens.

  • Brainstorming workshops
  • open networking
  • P2P support
  • customised workshops on specific topics.

We invite you to sign up on our newsletter or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to stay posted.
