Employees at SPARK, as well as researchers and individuals, had the chance to host another world expert with help from SwissEP. It was Matt Kuppers, an independent expert for the European Commission who has experience as a trainer for entrepreneurs (London School of Economics), and a startup consultant (Microsoft Accelerator, Startupbootcamp FinTech, Pitch@Palace, Cambridge University).
Mr. Kuppers visited SPARK in the period from 1st to 3rd of August, during which he held two workshops with all startups as well as separate 1on1 meetings with alumni startups.
During the workshop, he covered these topics: Product development and Marketing strategy, digital marketing, SEO, social media marketing.
“Our startups have also linked with Matt on social networks so they can contact him in the future in case they need his help.”
