Function Purpose: Build company relations so we can cooperate with them
Expected Results: Fill and develop this table and Companies in Tricity


  • On linkedin look for people in a given company - look for employer branding, then hrs, then others
  • Write to few people (for example 2-3 ppl), even if it is not urgent
  • Try to arrange a meeting to seal the deal
    • When arranging the meeting be clear with its agenda
    • Agenda should cover things needed to cover all the fill in tables
  • It is good to start with a note containing information about DDD meetup
    • What is DDD
    • For whom it is
