Technology companies differ from other companies, especially in terms of their risk profiles. Much is uncertain. Does the technology work? Does the development effort lead to a marketable product? Does it create value for broad needs? Does the technology provide the user the required functionality and usability? Who is the competition and what is the development state of their product? Do the business models work? Are there adequate resources for development, production, marketing and sales? And, and, and…?
To turn risks into opportunities, it takes knowledge, experiences, talents, funding, and partnerships.
In the Collaboration Network, businesses can find young, ambitious technology companies and executives from established companies as well as unique platforms that promote co-operation. All can work together on a peer-to-peer basis in addressing key issues such as product/service development, sales growth and the overall development of the business itself. With the tutelage of industry and market experts, businesses gain invaluable insights and knowledge, exchange experiences and ideas, and identify creative and exciting approaches to resolving challenges.
