Testimonials

“I feel overwhelmed and grateful. Feeling part of this international community of ecosystem builders is a great experience.”

Maria Anagnostopoulos | envolve, Athens, Greece

"This workshop was incredibly helpful in connecting us with those who are also facing the same problems and also helping us discover how we can tackle our challenges with an organized framework”

Estefania Escobar | InsurLab, Cologne, Germany

“The feeling was: 'Wow, there are people with the same kind of challenges and we can exchange our experiences. This workshop helps ecosystems a lot.”

Kim Gerlach | Drivhuset, Malmoe, Sweden

“We learned that we're not alone in this and could help each other a lot on this crazy journey.”

Liisi Org | Startup Estonia, Tallinn, Estonia

“I learned a lot from ecosystem builders around the globe, I can truly recommend this program! Successful ecosystems cannot be carried from outside - although benchmarking trips are nice - you need to find your own locations weak spots and barriers to work on. The program provided tools to do this.”

Joel Takala | University of Helsinki, Finland
