Det finns såklart inget roligare än att få spontan feedback (iallafall positiv sådan…) och när företag hör av sig till oss för att berätta om hur de upplevde tillväxtprocesserna, vad som hände efteråt och hur de har tagit sina verksamheter mot nya höjder så värms Connectarnas hjärtan.
Peter Wicks från Sustainable Stella mailade oss härom dagen med följande tankar kring Connects och vår kollega Fredriks insats.
”In the spring of 2019 my wife & I started to investigate how I could expand my online electric bike sales company, Buzzin Bikes, into the sustainable tourism industry. So I contacted Fredrik Tidholm who leads Connect Sverige in Skaraborg. Fredrik had two meetings with us at our home in Älgarås and this inspired me to sign up for the Springboard program in November 2019.
The result of this has been fantastic and we are very grateful to Fredrik for his enthusiasm, hard work, and expertise throughout the Springboard process. Through Fredrik & Connect Sverige we were very blessed to work with a great mentor, Maria Zachs, who helped us to develop a basic idea into a 20-page business plan with a budget. The new company, Sustainable Stella AB, was started in April 2020 with 8 electric bikes for hire and 4 sustainable cycling holidays in Skaraborg. Even with the fears surrounding corona, our first season was successful with plenty of business in July & August. The Competence Panel in October 2020 was the final stage of the Springboard process. Fredrik arranged a really awesome panel of 5 experts to give us highly valuable constructive feedback and inspirational ideas of how to improve, expand and go forwards into the future!”
