Weekly Digests are shared during the 10-week Kickstart program to keep our community up to date on exciting news, announcements, and updates from Kickstart, our partners, and our startups and alumni. View in browser here.
Happy Friday, Kickstart Family!
Previously, we announced the comeback of our bi-weekly digests to update our community on all of the exciting Kickstart activities, announcements, news, and more. However, we quickly realized that once every two weeks simply wasn't enough to keep you up to speed on everything happening, on top of the incredible things our scaleups and intrapreneurship teams are doing. Therefore, we are delighted to share that we will be up-ing the ante to weekly digests with the hopes you can engage with our scaleups even more.
You will receive a total of 8 newsletters until the wrap-up of the Kickstart program in December 2022.
Thank you for being part of this adventure!
