OPEN INNOVATIONS STARTUP TOUR
Nobody in their right mind would go to Yakutsk in February. Nobody, except the investors, experts, mentors, speakers, ready to do anything for the sake of your success.
In February, 2016 our Shelme project took part in Startup Tour in Novosibirsk. We made presentation, got in touch with other startups from our sphere, found investors and received expert feedback. In those 2 days we saw the directions to move in, got guidance from mentors who "are in the loop" and for the first time got acquainted with investors in startups, understood their logic and how to present them the product.
Startup Tour, actually, set us straight. This trip pushed us to action Before Novosibirsk we made mistakes in teamwork, thought that investment attraction is possible at an idea stage, then after expert and mentors feedback everything has exchanged. Oleg Ivanov and Stas Triyers were very helpful. We still keep in touch.
We plan to participate in Investbazare in autumn and to apply for investments in IIDF as soon as we reach the necessary turnover.
