Our current startups are working their way validating customers, developing their products to MVPs, perfecting their pitching, and interacting with corporates for POC’s and Pilots depending on the stage of the startup. The goal is the demo day on 13th of July. It will be an amazing event as always, invitation will follow in due time.
We are already scouting for the startups for the next batch starting in September. In April we were in Berlin; Maria with FIBAN (Finnish Business Angels Network) and Nordic Business Angels visiting the VC and investor scene and together with Ram in ExecFintech where one of our startups (BeeEye) pitched. Christian, our new team member, was invited to the luncheon with the Prime Minister in Ireland. We might have an Irish Fintech in the next batch. Last week was Arctic15 startup conference in Helsinki an intimate great event to get to know the local and Scandinavian startup scene. Where else can you have 15 quality meetings in a day?
Next on agenda we have moneyfintech in Helsinki where Maria is invited to give a speech; “The secret sauce of cooperation between Banks and FinTechs.” Ram and Maria will both be presenting in Tel Aviv in June for the FinTech Junction. Both events worth a visit.
