FTRNW 2020 at a glance
Last year’s program went in a different form than previous years, but the track headed the same direction: Our mission is to grow and connect the biggest community of innovators across Central Europe.
We continued building the future brick by brick and shaping up our event with a new digital program designed to support the growth of the best early-stage startups.
New era, new ideas
Due to the challenges brought to the table by COVID_19, we decided to run a fully digital bootcamp. What’s more, we introduced a couple of fresh changes to the event that were meant to evolve FTRNW even further! One of the biggest steps: as the program wasn’t run as a competition, we didn’t select a winner.
We selected 9 finalists for the program and we rewarded them with a big bag full of a wide range of benefits. The program was held fully online and delivered in partnership with a digital agency Creative Pro, with whom we had designed the collaborative interface and who managed the production of the videos afterward. Mondays and Wednesdays were recorded, please take a while and enjoy the “showreel video”. Moreover, a series of spotlight videos were created for the selected companies and partners.
Benefits for finalists
- Free space to access our local HubHub – physical space – plus access to the digital community: Jan – March 2021
- Access to specialized investors and partners (tailored program delivered on behalf of the partners between Jan. – March 2021)
- Virtual goody bag from sponsors
