This is an international investment battle, in which the most advantageous and investment-appealing startups from East European countries and California are going to fight.
Please, note that investment casting will be a rather tough one, which means only those future “unicorns” who could manage prequalification will take part in the event.
All you have to do at this stage is to fill in an application form and wait for the results.
We would also like to point out that despite complicated conditions you definitely need to try a hand, since there will be private investors, corporate investors, representatives of international venture funds and investment banks, heads of the leading private companies present among the guests of the Startup Battle.
This gives you the possibility to get acquainted with the ecosystem of Silicon Valley, meet a lot of important people and essentially broaden your own network!
On April 26 mentors of HACKT Mission will carry out preparatory pitch training and provide consultations for the participants of Intercontinental Startup Battle.

These are the experienced entrepreneurs who have already achieved high results in business, developed a number of their own projects and ready to share their expertise and invest into perspective business ideas. They will speak about the latest trends, share their own experience and knowledge, answer questions and advise the participants on the further development of projects.
