During the Summit, founders can present their startups to European and Eastern investors, companies and accelerators

Startup Touch
//

Touch looks for technology startups from Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Cyprus, Greece and Central Asia. 

The Summit will serve as a bridge between Europe and the Middle East for the entrepreneurs.

We’re expecting for the teams that easily fit the following criteria:

* Tech-based project (no wine production or marketing agencies, just software, hardware, IoT etc.)
* Team of 2+ members
* MVP (minimum viable product) ready - something you can already sell to someone else
* Initial traction - signups, downloads, website traffic, partnership signed etc.
* Global product - focused on the customer not only in the native country but in other similar markets as well
