NEXT Update #64: What's your California Roll?
By NEXT Amsterdam • Issue #64
We skipped two weekends and we’re sorry for that! We’ve been so busy that we didn’t have any articles to share. We had a great second Expert Session on how to use analytics to make data-driven decisions. We also made another investment in a fintech company! More on that in a later issue.
We have 6 desks left in our 🏤 office for a startup that wants to join our little ecosystem at Het Sieraad. Just shoot us an email if you are interested! 
Enjoy your weekend reading!
