The event took place on November 25 and 28, 2020.
#StartupBootcamp was made for early-stage startups and young entrepreneurs who are already running their businesses and need to develop their ideas and services.
Our key goal was to provide them with hands-on training in high-impact entrepreneurship. During our #Bootcamp participants have developed creative capacity, entrepreneurial confidence, and acquired the necessary skills to build scalable startups that solve real problems.
#StartupBootcamp was made up of two identical half-day workshops and four days of one2one individual meetings with our mentors in between.
We exceeded the startups’ expectations, as the webinar gained 81 registrations and 68 unique attendees.
Each participant may have had an individual one2one session with the mentor according to their business needs. We managed to achieve a total of 83 mentoring sessions, far exceeding the initially planned 50 meetings.
