Corporates have greatly strengthened our marketing programs. They have also helped us build trust for our other and future clients, as the corporate’s name gave Krenovator more credibility. We learned a lot from the corporates in terms of project management which we could directly implement in our own startup.

Once we gained the trust of our corporate partners/clients, we had new strong and reliable revenue streams. What’s more, we gained strong partners that we can collaborate with for our future projects.
