As an experienced entrepreneur, you will host aspiring entrepreneurs from abroad at your company.


“From the beginning it has not been my idea to take a lot from the NE - for me it was important to help others as I have been helped when I started as an entrepreneur. When that is said, The product of Rigid3D that Ernestas is working on could fit well into our product portfolio, when the product has been tested a bit more. - So in that way it is also an investment in future for me -both in terms of network and maybe direct business opportunities for me -both in terms of network and maybe direct business opportunities.”

     - Simon Klint Bergh, 3D Printhouse


“This has been a great opportunity! The whole team verified the positive effects of having an entrepreneurial talent from abroad adding new skills, motivation and new perspective to our team’s one. For sure we didn’t regret it, the opposite!"

     - Umberto Pellegrini, Impala
