Statements from former participants:

Karoline Solheim, CEO in Aniport

«When growing a company in an extremely competitive industry, like the energy storage market, we have no time to loose. Therefore it was no doubt for Beyonder to attend ITSA Growth after we were introduced to the topics and the experienced partners in the program. We needed an arena where we could test and experiment “off the record” our busines concepts without having fear to fail and at the same time build relationship to potential new business partners. ITSA Growth is highly recommended by the Beyonder management team for all companies that aim for this opportunity.»
Bjarte Magnussen, CFO i Beyonder
