About this event

Techstars is one of the top accelerators in the world. Thousands of founders have gone through their acceleration programs and leveraged growth from it.

In developing as a startup it's important to get excellent mentorship and to make connections outside Georgia that will help you throughout your life. 

Two Georgian startups were accelerated at Techstars Berlin and have some great results from the experience. Join Shota Giogorbiani from Optio.ai and Lasha Antadze from Shelf.network will share their experiences going overseas for venture acceleration and Francis Goodenday, General Manager EMEA & APAC at Techstars, to talk about their program and expansion.

NOTE: the venue is very small so the event is intended mostly for serious startups considering applying to accelerators.
