Graduation night of Fit 4 Start #6

The ICT start-ups of Fit 4 Start #6 went through four months of intensive coaching, being challenged every day by lean start-up experts. Developing a MVP, conducting a customer discovery and testing their product-market-fit are just some of the lessons the start-ups learned during the acceleration programme.
