You’ll get answers to your burning questions around turning your great idea into a thriving business. In addition, the room will be jam-packed with helpful, well-networked people from Cisco, MSP and our partners. Get advice and connections, strengthen your proposition and widen your network. Finally, there will be the opportunity to meet other start ups in your field, many of whom will have experience of working with Cisco and MSP, and can give you the lowdown on the benefits of joining Mi-IDEA.
