    Long List

    Upon agreement of a scope of work, Matchlabn will provide a "Long List" of suggested startups and experts with whom to meet.


    Following a discussion with you, Matchlabn will prioritize the startups to a "Short List". These become the program around which Matchlabn organizes the schedule and logistics.

    Innovation Tour

    We send you the final agenda. A Matchlabn representative accompanies you and facilitates all meetings.
