NEXT Update #70 - Doing The Heavy Lifting
By NEXT Amsterdam • Issue #70
Our 70th newsletter! Time flies when your sending out emails. Thank you all for subscribing and reading our weekly update. 
Last week have been a bit uneventful. We’re working on an investment in an Austrian startup, met with the founder of a Swedish startup studio and have been doing some corporate innovation consulting. Next week we’ll be driving to Kitzbühel, Austria for the business angel summit. Plus two well deserved holiday-days afterwards. So we might skip an issue next weekend :)
Enjoy your weekend!
