We optimized strategy, financing and met great mentors and consultants.
Where does your company stand today (employees, customers, partners, investment, soft funding, etc.)?
Notus has one employee, one pilot customer, approved soft funding, investors, and an almost finalized product.
How did 6AM support you during the program?
6AM put us in contact with the right people, helped to formalize strategies and assisted us in all possible ways.

Don't be afraid of asking for help or asking for big things. With 6AM's network, the answers might not be far away.
