What should you expect?

The most intense 24 hours of your life! We start with a pitching session where you get 1 minute to present your idea in front of the audience and gain the support of the public! Teams will be organically formed around the most appreciated ideas.

You then have 24 hours to build a minimum viable product and develop your business concept under the close guidance of entrepreneurs, tech specialists and industry leaders. In the end, you pitch again, this time in front of a jury, and the best 26 teams (16 from Bucharest and 10 from Cluj) will enter the pre-acceleration program.

What’s next?

From March to May you will develop your product together with exceptional mentors and guest speakers. You will attend TechTalks, open discussions with experts in different areas, and you will participate in mentoring sessions that will help you turn your idea into a viable startup.

In May you get the chance to showcase your product at the Demo Day where you’ll pitch in front of a jury of investors and accelerators!
