How does it work?

For your first idea meeting, we will match you with a business development coach who will ask you to briefly tell you about your idea or the problem/need that you have identified. You can get answers to any questions you might have –  if your idea has business potential, how you could finance product development, how to protect your idea or something completely different. You will also get advice on what your next steps towards turning your idea into reality might be.

Our experienced business development coaches provide you with confidential advice based on proven methods and tools.
