FutureNow - free growth program for startups

Our network member HubHub, together with FutureNow, are organizing a free growth program for early-stage startups. FutureNow was usually a big conference, with a bootcamp, contest for startups and hundreds of guests – but for obvious reasons that’s not happening this year. They therefore decided to turn this challenge into an opportunity to reach out to an even broader network and to create impactful collaborations across and beyond the region.

Note that last day to apply is november 8, 2020.

The new program will be fully digital, and run between 23 November – 11 December 2020. It will expose startups to the great mentors, partners and investors in our region. During the three weeks, the startups will have access to:

  • Inspiration Mondays –specialists will deliver inspirational workshops about fundraising, product-market fit and business expansion.
  • ‘Office Hours’ Wednesdays - Each startup will be grilled by 2 seasoned founders and 1 investor to expose potential gaps and learn more about their unique selling points.
  • 1-1 mentoring sessions on Fridays.

This is a great chance to expand the network and knowledge alongside usual business!

To apply as a startup, you must:

  • have been less than 5 years on the market
  • have less than 1 million Euro of investment thus far
  • operate in or have at least one co-founder from Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, UK or Germany

Some of the benefits:
