WIPA Business Support Components


WIPA Start-up Exchange programmes are designed to increase the likelihood of successful development of start-ups, high-growth businesses and scale-ups, facilitating growth that is beyond that which each participating company could achieve on its own. Offering value-adding services will be key to WIPA Start-up Exchange’s ability successfully to nurture ambitious businesses, provide them with access to capital, help them grow and scale and generate jobs and wealth.
