Growpreneur Demo Day

The 2nd round of Growpreneur Acceleration Programme was finalized with a Demo Day, on January 27, after 3 intensive months of work.

After partaking in the bootcamps, mentoring, and coaching sessions the ‘GROWstartups’ got to showcase the development of their businesses, in front of potential investors from all over the Balkans. All pitches were followed by a Q&A session from the investors, who put the start-ups in the spotlight of the night.

The interactive event, hosted by Yunus Social Business Balkans, welcomed guests from the Albanian innovation ecosystem and among others, speeches from Minister for Protection of Entrepreneurship Edona Bilali and Deputy Mayor of Tirana Anuela Ristani. The awarding of “Mentor of the Year” to Elsa Hala, Suela Kocibellinj and Tomi Kallanxhi concluded the gala night in bright spirit.

You can watch the whole livestream of the event, proudly supported for the second year by EU for Innovation, through the link:
