Trotz meiner jahrelangen Erfahrung ist es essentiell für das Agro Innovation Lab, die Experten von acccoi partners an unserer Seite zu haben. Mit ihrer langjährigen Erfahrung mit dem Bauen von Corporate Accelerators und als Entrepreneurs bringen sie die perfekte Mischung zwischen Corporate und Startup.
To design Elevator Lab according to the acccoi SCOAP© methodology assured the success and visibility that we have not only been named "Most Innovative Bank in CEE" right after the first year, but also have eight countries joining the program with local Elevator Lab Challenges.
acccoi's SCOAP© methodology is a perfect opportunity for consultancies to enhance their portfolio and position themselves as open innovation pioneers to their clients. The three-year curriculum enables long-term relationships with customers and paves the way for "cross-company" consultancy with diverse follow-up opportunities.
Martin and Thomas have been one of the main drivers of Taggalo's success through the ChallengeUp! program and a continuous source of inspiration related to the way growth of B2B businesses shall be executed.
In addition to their high professional level, we were really impressed by the personal care and motivation of the acccoi team. They put a piece of their "heart" in our project, considering it like QualityLine was their own. The investment and time are more than worth it and I would recommend the acccoi later-stage acceleration program to every Startup!
Martin and Thomas are all about "creativity & hustle" two vital ingredients to get to market. Our deep thanks to both for the live Cisco EIR master classes in how to elevate our game and make customers love what we do.
