We are very excited and honored to have been chosen to participate in the inRes acceleration program in Pittsburgh. We expect to benefit from Carnegie Mellon University’s network of contacts so that we can take our business to the United States. These contacts can be not only from direct clients, online stores, but also from companies and partners that can help distribute and expand the business.”
