Community & Demo Day Agenda

Why a day dedicated to the community? Because this is the foundation we’ve built on since 2017 – throughout the years, we supported over 250 founders in their journey and had more than 4000 participants in our programs. We couldn’t have done it without the unconditional support of our 150+ mentors from our community. They believe that #WeAreinThisTogether and contribute to the complete startup journey we created, from self-discovery to raising investment.
