Step Change 2019 – A Roadmap for Industry, Innovation and Ecosystem
Step Change is the first glass industry startup event in the world, whose goal is to bridge the gap between the glass industry with a space to engage innovators, startups and new technologies. The Step Change ecosystem is unlike anything seen in the glass industry to date. At the 2017 GPD event, we gathered over thirty glass industry startups to showcase and pitch, which provided the startups and industry an insight into how they can work together.
