At Cresco we are passionate about entrepreneurship and fostering the growth of our clients. We are intimately aware that Cresco and its lawyers form an integral part of the business and investment community and strongly believe in our duty to contribute to the future and success of such community well beyond our client services.
As part of our commitment, we have founded the Cresco Academy, dedicated to providing entrepreneurs, companies and the investment community with the knowledge, know-how, insight and network to grow their businesses to the next level.
We have deep-rooted relationships with entrepreneurs and companies, leading investors, banks and accounting firms, as well as universities, incubators and accelerators. We are keen on leveraging our network through Cresco Academy to provide a unique learning and networking platform.
We regularly organize networking events which are open to entrepreneurs, emerging, growth and established companies, as well as other members of the investment community, and serve as an interactive platform to socialize, share experiences and build long-lasting networks.

Cresco Academy organizes conferences and seminars with the aim to give back to the entrepreneur community. We always endeavor to involve experienced industry leaders and entrepreneurs, investors and other thought leaders to share their knowledge and experience with the participants. Several broad topics covering business, strategy and legal matters are treated at Cresco Academy events. We strongly believe in the interactive case study method allowing the participants to gain insight into real life examples instead of abstract theories. Since the formation of Cresco we have partnered with prominent institutes and organizations to share with them our expertise, knowledge, know-how and insights.
