Startup support webinar – watch the recording


COVID-19 has brought new challenges to everyone’s lives, especially startup entrepreneurs. We want to help the ecosystem by creating a new online community meeting where you’ll get relevant information about the ongoing situation and inspiration for working in challenging circumstances.

As we are all facing this together, us at A Grid and Maria 01 felt that it’s time to unite and share knowledge, resources and experience so that we can better find resilience from these changes.

On May 7th 2020, A Grid and Maria 01 organized Startup Webinar: COVID-19 Business Help, an uplifting and informative gathering of Finnish startups and entrepreneurs.
