In order to create a relevant SV network, you need to know what you are trying to achieve. Therefore, start with defining your goals. Based on these, determine the relevant ecosystem among companies, institutions, universities/professors, investors, incubators, individuals, and events. And then start building the network. We provide support with identifying the players and making the introductions.
