There must be a good idea to start a successful business. But how to find out if my idea is good enough? Will I not waste energy, time, and money on a service no one is interested in?

The project „Start to Run!“ gives a helping hand. A platform that reveals the potential of an idea and its chances to develop into a functioning „business“.

SK-NIC is partner of the “Start to Run!” project. In 2020, the 2nd year of the SK-NIC Fund’s call took place, the aim of which was to support business in a virtual environment. As part of the Call for Small Projects 2020, “Start to Run!” project impressed with its visions and received financial support from the fund.
