Early stage startups in the CEE looking for investments, mentoring opportunities and networking can now be a part of this year’s How to Web Startup Spotlight – competition and orientation program with $20.000 cash prizes for the best 32 teams in the region. Aimed at those startups who’ve been running under two years and have received less than 100.000 euro in funding, Startup Spotlight is an intensive program for CEE startups that are working on tech products.
The program will take place from November the 19th through 22nd in Bucharest where teams will face workshops and dedicated mentoring sessions, top notch investors and early stage investments funds as well as their representatives. TechStars, 500 Startups, Seedcamp, and 3TS Capital are just some of the names who will be in Bucharest.
Workshops, one-to-one meetings and experience mentors
Latest stats show that year over year, 35% of the startups that attended Startup Spotlight managed to close important deals as a result of participating in this program. Numerous mentors gave valuable information and feedback to all the teams who later found it much useful during their startup voyage.
