platinn mobilizes its coaches community to better serve companies during these tumultuous times. In addition to the usual innovation support provided by platinn through its four coaching services - which in some cases will represent useful solutions to the many challenges entrepreneurs have to face in this unprecedented context - platinn provides a broader inventory of the skills of its coaches that can be mobilized in these times of crisis. Thus, via a special page (accessible by clicking on this dialogue box), the skills of our network are highlighted in order for them to be incorporated where needed. We hope that this will give the Antennas the opportunity to extend their actions in the field by relying on our pool of coaches, outside the usual coaching framework.
platinn, the Western Switzerland Innovation Platform, fosters the innovation capabilities and competitiveness of start-ups and SMEs through its coaching services.
