How to make a successful business out of a technical idea or product?

Making a successful business is not easy. Making a successful business out of a technique or technical product might be even more challenging. During this HI Masterclass on July 3th in Rotterdam you will learn how to commercialize a technique or technical product. By discussing realistic business ideas we will help you get a births eye view on all relevant topics for a promising – one page – business plan. Learn how to address all relevant topics ranging from revenue streams, the added value to your potential customer, costs, your market, the organization as well as suppliers.
