Global startups invited to pitch VCs at Silicon Valley Startup Bootcamp 2020 in Spain
Startups from all over the world are invited to pitch their businesses to investors at Startup Bootcamp 2020, an offline event that brings Silicon Valley to Spain.
Put on by InnMind and Silicon Valley’s Draper University, Startup Bootcamp 2020 will take place in the Catalan capital of Barcelona, Spain from October 17-21, with the support of the i2cat Foundation and the Government of Catalonia.
Applications for global startups are open now until September, and up to 100 startups will be chosen for the intense, five-day acceleration program that democratizes the way startups pitch to VC investors.
Combining European expertise via InnMind’s network of over 10,000 startups and 2,000 investors with Draper University’s connections in Silicon Valley, Startup Bootcamp 2020 will condense what normally takes three months of hard work into just five days.
As Europe’s premiere networking platform for startups and investors, InnMind will be providing unique opportunities for all the on-boarded residents of the program to participate in pre-event activities online, in addition to offline networking, mentoring sessions, workshops, demo days, and startup acceleration.
Despite all the instability, INNMIND is proud to announce that we raised more than $23M in the first half of 2020 alone!💸💻
