This is what they have to say about working with us:
It’s not hard to come across one of the many “academical entrepreneurs” when you start your business. They have read every book there is about starting a company, but have never done it themselves. What you need is an entrepreneur who has been through the ropes him- or herself and who is willing to coach you when starting your business. SO2 does exactly this, in the best possible way. Their coaching has been invaluable for us.
