NEXT Update #56 - How to Project Your Startup’s Growth
By NEXT Amsterdam • Issue #56
We made big steps in preparing the redecoration of our office. We found a great floor and made plans for the meeting rooms, bar and a lounge area. Tomorrow we’re meeting our architect to make sure it also all makes sense :) 
This week we have 3 long-reads and an extra publication from our friends at We Are Builders. They explain what makes a Studio different than an Incubator or an Accelerator. Interesting read!
