Every year at How to Web we’ve organized the Startup Challenge competition, encouraging startups to pitch their product and business, get feedback and move forward. This year is no exception, but we’ve transformed the Startup Challenge into the Startup Spotlight program & competition that you all know.
Last year’s Startup Challenge had 10 finalists from 7 countries. We were amazed, but we also realized we can do so much more for the startups. So we’ve involved 12 world-renowned accelerators, exceptional professionals as mentors, active investors and 20.000 USD cash prizes from our partners at IXIA.
But while presenting the program we’ve also been asked another question: why make it available only for CEE startups ? Why only for early stage ones ?
