Building a successful startup is a long and bumpy road; without entrepreneurial passion and strategic vision, a stellar resume merely becomes a piece of paper. But is there another important thing to consider when putting together a team that will be pushing the vision forward? A team that will attract investors and will be able to work closely with them? Let’s find out and discuss while networking with angel investors, VCs and startups based in Tampere.
