666 SPEED DATING FOR EDUCATION STARTUPS
We are back with another promising session. If you are an Education sector startup with an idea, a proof of concept or an MVP, or simply speaking you have more questions than what you have answers for - this is where you want to be.
'666' stands for 6 Startups 6 Mentors 6 Minutes each
i.e. we invite only 6 startups to the event, who spend 6 minutes each with 6 mentors from different domains. It is like speed dating, but then our mentors are happy to oblige by carrying on the discussion post the session is over.
