For us at GateHouse Group, participating in the SWAA17 is an opportunity to offer our experience to entrepreneurs, but also an opportunity to see what innovation 2017 looks like from other perspectives than our own. The entrepreneurial approach, energy and state-of-mind is a powerful fuel for business advancement – no matter how established a company is.
