Check out our trinational ecosystem agenda

News 10.06.2022

Some time ago we held our first event “#trinational #entrepreneurship #beyondborders”. We aimed at connecting and bringing together as many trinational #ecosystem organizations as possible in the space of #entrepreneurial support. 

To get a feeling of how our event felt like and what participants had to say about the experience, our short aftermovie is a must-watch! ????  

To move forward in our objectives and goals, the project’s committee SEMIA Startinsland Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe (FWTM) & Basel Area Business & Innovation, publicly shares the outcomes from our gathering. It consisted of a speed-dating networking part and 5 different thematic roundtables with changing members.

Check out the summary in the text below.

We’ll be continuing our work throughout and beyond this
year. A first step will be to transform existing events in the 3 regions into trinational friendly events. This means that we will support the promotion of the event in all 3 regions, help bring entrepreneurs from the other regions to the event as well as produce video & photo documentation of the event. ????
