Accelerator Participant 2022

Labnest has given me the opportunity to realize my dream together with experts. Without Labnest, it was very difficult for me to get to the right people to have Foodswapp where it is now. You also work together with other start-ups and that also provides motivation. You are in the same boat with like-minded people.
