Description

World Startup Factory's team can't wait to make a big splash again this year at Border Sessions, easily one of the most refreshing Tech Culture Festivals around. We have the opportunity to host a session with inspiring Leila Janah and Nicolaj Højer Nielsen!

During the program you will be able to:

- learn insights from the experts about the startup ecosystem and the entrepreneurship in general

- become inspired to start your own entrepreneurial journey or be able to learn new tricks from the experience of the experts

- get insights in the investor perspective on the startup ecosystem

- learn more about the startup funding and how it works

- dive into the methods of being successful while contacting investors

Our two main keynote speakers are:

Meet Leila Janah
