In these meetings and just after a couple of weeks we were able to redesign our sales organization to implement a new sales process and also we were able to set up a new partnership sales. The business trip to the UK was great, it made me realize I should move to London to hunt our first customers there.“

Vladislav Severa

„Ment2Grow brought us many interesting contacts, either through Pitch Night or through the pool of contacts. Thanks to the program, I had the opportunity to meet one-to-one with very interesting people. For example, from companies with tens of thousands of employees around the world and also with the investors and it was really beneficial for us.“

Lenka Michalská

„My expectations from Ment2Grow were met more than one hundred percent. We are still in contact with the three investors I met as a part of Ment2Grow. We also gained a new business partner at the networking event. Networking gave me the most, I found out what path to take when looking for foreign contacts.“
