UpStart - Great opportunity for Armenian Startups
Microsoft Innovation Center Armenia in partnership with the Institute of Innovative Technologies is starting a new project UpStart, a unique project for Armenian startups. UpStart is a contest, open to early-stage startups with innovative ideas. The project includes three-day workshops through which they will improve and enrich their pitching skills. The selected startups will be invited to the pitching battle, which will take place on October 29 in the Marriott Hotel (Tigran Mets Hall) where 50+ local and foreign businessmen will be invited to attend the presentations of 12-15 Armenian start-up projects. The panel of judges will include VC fund representatives and IT professionals from different parts of the world. The winner will be awarded $2500 dollars and a chance to have a private meeting with the sponsor who is looking to invest 50,000-200,000 dollars in an Armenian Tech startup.
