How to prepare for this Cif training

If you’re an impact startup, you are probably already prepared. Bring to the Cif training your;

  • Pitch deck
  • Laptop or tablet
  • CTO and CEO

And what you have in terms of numbers, not the number of clients or cash, but weights, amounts, energy consumption etc. relevant to your innovation. There is no need to hunt for data if you don’t know it yet, after the training you will know exactly which data might still be needed, and how to find it.
