Meet the Startup Spotlight 2014 participants!

Today is the day, everyone, the day we announce the 32 participants to this year’s Startup Spotlight competition and orientation program!

The expert jury has finished evaluating the applications we’ve receive and now we’re ready to announce the name of the teams who will be joining us between November 19 & 22 in Bucharest, for a full 4 days of mentoring, pitching and meeting with potential investors, accelerators, and potential partners and advisers.

What’s fantastic about the applications we received is the level of maturity that these startups display. Teams from all over the CEE applied for a chance to reach their goals within the program, and they know exactly what they want. They come well prepared, with products already gaining traction and some even having undergone acceleration programs. Another inspiring fact is the sheer diversity of the products that were pitched to the jury, which goes to show that innovation can emerge in any field at any given moment, as unlikely as it may seem.

And now it’s time to congratulate the Startup Spotlight 2014 participants!
