„I had the privilege to be assigned with Ms. Petra Wolkenstein for Expansion-Coaching during the Welcome program for startups organized by Vienna Business Agency. She provided me with invaluable insights on negotiation tactics and partnership building. Thanks to her inputs and council, I was able to bring my business culture to an upper level. She put an extra effort not only to share her understanding of the startup’s expansion path but also to create new opportunities for us, by connecting us with other relevant startups and corporations from the local scene.“
