What can you gain?

Who are we looking for?

You have a prototype of a solution in one of the areas the program focuses on – it can be the MVP or a model that you can connect to data in the Lab.

You are ready to validate technical and business hypotheses – we will help you define them with our unique workshops.

You don’t need to have commercial clients – your Sales team might not be as strong as Tech team but you still need to validate the solution!

You have a defined group of recipients which corresponds to Żabka’s stakeholders – so that together you can build an ecosystem of modern convenience solutions.
