We know from previous experience that the number and quality of the candidates that apply determines the quality of the round table groups and the value derived by each participant. The outcomes of the 5th cycle, with average revenue growth of (17%) being experienced by the two thirds of participants that experienced growth, an additional 50 new jobs created and with 6 new exporters, sets the standard of what we want to achieve, and if possible exceed, in the sixth cycle.
