Why KONE thinks API Economy is important?

Customer case

“You’ll get back a million times more than you could imagine from this course. Osaango team and the experts on this course have links to so many people in tech and business; they even helped me find my potential co-founder. They took me from idea to being ready for a team and investment. As a solo entrepreneur, it is easy to get lost in your own ideas and thoughts. Osaango guided me though operational steps where I was able to turn my idea into concrete business. I gained new insights, especially from a technical point of view, that I may not have discovered on my own. There was also the benefit of receiving consultation sessions with the Osaango team. They have so much knowledge about the world of tech and business which a real rare find. ”
