Actions and Detail Panel
Fintech [Hot topic] Startups, Accelerators & Unicorn Hunting
Tue 12 September 2017, 18:30 – 21:00 PDT
We are holding an 'unconference style event' where the audience takes part throughout. Are accelerators changing and strengthening startups when they most need it? Does this formula that Y-Combinator have created work as well across the Globe?
We are challenging the conventional way to build a startup or scale-up. With a focus on team building, developers and product management. How to speed up this process with the 'Fail Fast' mantra and collaborate/ build with an interchangeable toolkit.
The Party Isn’t Over: A Deep-Dive into Why #Unicorns Will Bounce Back in 2017 http://bit.ly/2kx7PLP When Cowboy Ventures’ Aileen Lee coined the term “Unicorn” to describe privately-held startups worth more than $1 billion, she wanted to emphasize the rarity and elusiveness of these finds as a venture investor.
It was 2013, the #techsector was awash with investor dollars, Uber and Snapchat had raised large funding rounds at eye-popping valuations, #incubators and #accelerators were all the rage, and @ElonMusk had announced his Hyperloop project.
