Startuppers et Capitole Angels doivent apprendre à mieux se connaitre

By | November 28th, 2018|Categories: Cartau's Perspective|

« Les Capitole Angels ont mauvaise réputation! ».  J’ai entendu cette phrase à plusieurs reprises ces dernières années, en fréquentant le microcosme toulousain de l’innovation. A la question de savoir pourquoi, ainsi que la source de cette information, la réponse restait élusive.
