4 THINGS WE EXPECT FROM YOU
WHAT OUR STARTUPS SAY...
"Especially in the beginning, when you are still completely inexperienced as an entrepreneur, you need partners you can really trust. That is why it was extremely helpful for us to have a partner like INiTS at our side after the foundation".
"After the INiTS Startup Camp, we realized that our idea was slowly taking shape and became a real company. The cooperation with experts and consultants who guided and accompanied us on our startup journey was definitely our biggest highlight".
"INiTS prepared us excellently for initial talks with investors, during the founding phase it was great to exchange ideas with other startups in a similar situation".
