IoT, Digitalization and M-commerce, some ideas lacked the connection but still
showed strong signs to succeed.
Meanwhile during summertime, before our next Idea Garage,
all Co-Founders and Founders, please proceed with talking to your potential

you. All this to understand the problems they face, need for a new & better

Don’t offer answers
Make them prioritize
