Lunch & Learn #MutOffensive - A compass in times of opportunity.

If you want to be courageous, you need a lot of strength. Power of implementation, innovative strength and future strength. And the right tools. That's why we're launching the next evolutionary stage of the #MutOffensive on 29.02.2024.

We ask the question: Does only pressure create change? How can we support or even ensure the success of innovation in SMEs, banks and start-ups? How can we help people overcome innovation hurdles?
