REAL-LIFE TESTING & TUNING
Depending upon the development stage of your solutions, we will team up to conduct: a Proof of Concept to make sure that your technology works in the complex and regulated environment of a top tier bank, and/or a Proof of Value to measure the business impact of your solutions and its value. This will provide you with more experience and enable you to tune your solution for even more relevance and impact…and ultimately to sign a contract with ING.
To support the Proof of Concept, we run a track of masterclasses. This track exists out of key trainings and is complemented with ad hoc mentoring & support via a mentor pool. The goal is to better equip you with the skills, tools & networks needed to accelerate your growth, and continue to improve your solution and go-to-market.
