What impact do you believe INNOWWIDE will have on your company?
The impact is already very positive. First of all, it is allowing us to better understand one of our target countries (Australia) which is normally a difficult task,especially if the company does not have a physical office and in addition, the proposed technology is being known among potential end-users thanks to the close collaboration with our Australian partner.

INNOWWIDE is the perfect chance to land into a new market with the help of a local partner which will help your company to better understand not the market but also the country’s culture.
