You only have a quick question or think the start-up consultation is not quite right for you at the current time?

Speedback - initial feedback on an idea or business model in just 15 minutes.

Your idea is still in its infancy? You only have a quick question? Or are you simply in awe of the word "start-up consultation"?

Then come to Speedback! A no-obligation short consultation in just 15 minutes with quick and honest feedback. And if the feedback is: We can help you even more - then we'll simply make another appointment for the start-up consultation.

The Speedback appointments take place weekly on alternating days.
