This time, we will change the program a little bit. In the first hour you will be able to present your project and ask for what you need (help, mentoring, a co-founder, investment, an MVP, etc.).

In the second hour, we will be chatting to Karen with a fireside chat.

Last, but not least, we will be having a Mojito-driven networking hour. The first round is on us!
