Three engagement types related to the phases in your journey​


Scouts are initial key topic workshop participants that have the possibility of interacting with people already in the Ideation Phase and get a sneak peek into what the ecosystem has to offer.

Explorers are participants at the beginning of their journey within the ecosystem. They have access to ideation and use-case exploration workshops.

Pioneers are actively developing their business concepts after the ideation phase, developing use-cases while collaborating with other Pioneers, with a proactive approach of turning ideas into viable ventures.
