"Besides an energizing team spirit, you become part of a potential new start-up in a setting incomparable to anything else. Or can you think about a place where you get all the freedom you need to be creative and being paid for creating your own company?"
"It's the combination of young enthusiastic talents on the one side and motivated corporate partners on the other side that enables The Mission to catalyze innovation in a unique way."
"The program provides you not only with a safe environment to develop your ideas or with experienced partners to work with. It also comes with many open-minded and energetic people and heaps of drive and positive energy. There are tons of awesome workshops, in which everyone improves their working styles, and learning is guaranteed on a constant level. The biggest take-away is to work independently, to grow together with your team, and to develop your own idea."
“It’s a very young, dynamic environment to work in. Moreover, we feel connected to all the other teams and do not have the need or feeling of competing against each other. Instead, we find this environment perfect for supporting each other’s ideas, struggles - being a big team.”
“We really like that The Mission is a safe environment to test out our ideas. In addition, Futury provides us with an excellent network of corporate partners that share their knowledge with us and are willing to help us to remove the roadblocks on our way.”
"It’s just great to work with so many inspired and motivated people. The corporate partners and Futury members act as experienced sparring partners, who supply us with great support and accompany us on our way towards a solution. They provide us with valuable feedback and help us taking on new perspectives."
“A huge diversity of personalities is one of the most valuable aspects being part of the Mission V. This environment is motivating and inspiring to make the most out of the time, which passes by very fast.”
