The decision-making behind the rescheduling of Silicon Valley Startup Bootcamp event brought new opportunities for the program residents, emphasizing on leveraging online connections and networking traction with VCs & CVCs before the actual offline event in April 2021.
InnMind, the largest digital European ecosystem for startups & investors, on behalf of Draper University and the rest of the organizational team has announced the change in the dates of Silicon Valley Startup Bootcamp program – a 5-day startup acceleration & networking event in Catalonia, Spain. The decision was made to postpone the event to April 2021 based on the travel restriction predictions connected to covid-19 pandemic and safety regulations.

- Participation in online Shark Tank Pitching Sessions with investors & VCs;

“Barcelona is at the forefront in the Spanish startup ecosystem, and that is true not only for the amount of startups but also for its diversity in terms of international entrepreneurs, VCs and platforms establishing professional networks, such as InnMind. Catalonia’s capital is showing healthy growth in the number of women founders that currently reaches 15% and lies slightly above the European average. Facts tell us that Barcelona appears in numerous rankings as one of the most popular destinations for European Tech talent, therefore it is safe to say that Catalonia is a great place for diverse types of entrepreneurs to seek new opportunities for business and innovation.” – as recently commented Roma Jelinskaite, Investment Manager at Caixa Capital Risc
