“When we started Accelerate2030, we were barely beginning to understand international business and how we wanted to scale the company. Now, we are an international company with its headquarters in Amsterdam, and operations in the UK and Costa Rica. Thanks to all the support at Accelerate2030 we were able to develop, improve and execute such a strategy.”
