We’ll start your unique project!

The #threetwoone workshop is a new five-day accelerator that aims to check the viability of projects in their early stages.

  • Promising projects can subsequently cooperate with the Karel Janeček Foundation

For whom is the project suitable?

Are you dealing with questions like: Who are my customers? What issues do they have? Do I know how to solve their problems? Are customers willing to pay for the product or service? What is the quickest animal? After participating in the programme, you should be able to answer all these questions and thereby minimize the risk of failure when launching your project.
