    • The results of the project were splendid. Six meetings were arranged – all with CEOs, COOs or founders. Out of the six companies, half are class-A prospects with the potential for significant investment in our city in the near term. In addition, the remaining companies all show investment potential in the longer term. In summary, we expect a conversion rate of 33 per cent and a positive ROI within months.
