    "Jeg setter stor pris på hvor mye tid rådgiverne bruker på oss og sparrer med oss. Jeg har aldri hørt om en inkubator innland eller utland som strekker seg så langt for å hjelpe startups. Utrolig tøft at Kjeller Innovasjon støtter til og med startups som kun er på idé stadiet" Jannicke Mikkelsen, Founder He-3P
