Building Bridges in the Start-up Ecosystem
This event is a special kickstart event on the female factor in business and its strategic relevance within the start-up and investment ecosystem. At Blooming Founders, WE SHAPE TECH and btov we have combined experience, knowledge and networks to host a joint event on the evening of June 21st, 2017. You will need to register on the website.
