ImpactCity en MKB The Hague presents Think & Drink: The secret of Silicon Valley
Think & Drink is all about innovation: based on lessons from (Dutch) entrepreneurs, active in Silicon Valley, we share insights and best practices about growth, financing, “growth hacking” and “pay it forward” principles. How do you ensure that innovation remains part of your business operations and what mindset does that belong?
Guests from Silicon Valley are frequent entrepreneur Wibe Wagemans and tech journalist Eva Schram. Based on their recently published book “The Secret of Silicon Valley” (November 2020), we explore practical lessons for entrepreneurs and the Hague’s impact ecosystem.
Sign up now for this Think & Drink on March 4 from 17:00 to 17:45.
