This weekend LAUNCHub is deciding who will be the ideas worth investing. The 7th edition of LAUNCHub’s Long Weekend, held October 22-24 at Telerik HQ in Sofia will ad fresh members to the fund family of companies. Eleven companies form nine countries (Bulgaria, Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, Germany, Greece, UK and USA) are competing to get up to EUR 200K from the Bulgarian VC fund.
The goal of LH Long Weekend is meet the pre-selected teams and intro them with successful entrepreneurs from previous investor batches. The teams will have the opportunity to pitch their idea multiple times, get valuable feedback, pivot and train for the final presentation in front of the selection committee. It’s great experience for the teams and doing it for a seventh time definitely pays off for the teams and the VC itself.
