A lucky group of 32 early-stage startups from Central and Eastern Europe will participate in How to Web Startup Spotlight, a three-day program that is part of the How to Web conference in Bucharest. The program is dedicated to web and mobile startups with less than 2 years of activity and funding no larger than €100K.
The Startup Spotlight sounds like a great comprehensive opportunity, starting with a day of practical workshops as well as pitching training, followed by the opportunity to pitch at the How to Web conference. The best 8 teams will get to pitch at the keynote sessions, while the rest will be pitching at a dedicated startup stage. The winners will receive a total of €20K in cash prizes and various in-kind gifts.
Everyone will receive mentoring as well as opportunity to meet investors and accelerator representatives from established European programs such as Seedcamp, HackFwd, Rockstart, international programs like Mozilla WebFWD, blackbox, or GrowLab, as well as CEE institutions like GammaRebels, Startup Wise Guys, LaunchHUB and many more.
In summary, this sounds like an excellent opportunity for your early-stage startup. The deadline to apply is October 13th.
