Yellow Quotation Mark

The innovation support has helped us in various ways, they've been able to introduce us to investors and supported us with legal clinics, but they are also there just to sanity check our ideas. It's been really useful to get an outsider's perspective on our ideas, and work together with our fellow Innovators at Future Space."
