Real-time Problem Solving
During the Q&A round, entrepreneurs asked for solution and advice regarding their challenges such as choosing the right brand name, marketing strategy, and how to find business suppliers. After Q&A, participants joined an open discussion with mentors. We had very diverse participants, engineers from Volvo, entrepreneurs and business owners from China, Italy, Iran, India and Sweden. This diversity made the discussions very interesting and constructive.
Mingle and Networking
We encouraged the participants to get the most out of the mingles. They used this opportunity to expand their network and build connections. At the end, some of them found their potential co-founders and some found new business partners.
