  3. If you are part of a team, link your team members to your project. 

3. Get support

There are two ways you can get support at >>venture>>: join our events and work with a coach. Both are free of charge.

  1. At our events, you can find new team mates, get your business plan challenged by our coaches, or meet potential investors. Some events require online registration.
