Workshop for German Startups

International IT-Sourcing

Free Workshop 

IT-Sourcing and Market Experts share market insights, data, and experiences

The shortage of skilled professionals in the IT sector hinders not only established companies but also young entrepreneurs with innovative ideas and growth potential. One solution is to collaborate with IT service companies outside of Germany.

In this workshop, we will show you how international collaborations work, what opportunities exist, and provide a chance for networking with companies, associations, and public partners.
