The quality of ideas will be evaluated based on potential to scale globally, great team that can deliver and existing prototype, so make sure you prepare your best pitch – only a limited number of teams will access the 1-on-1 mentoring session after pitching. You’ll have a chance to note the pros and cons of your idea and look at your idea from different standing points – be ready for a busy day.

Berzins (Buzztale CEO, TechHub Riga Head of the Board), Markku Issakainen (Business Model Helsinki CEO), Maris Dagis (Sellfy Founder) and Anna Andersone (Froont Co-founder).
