This 3-day event will start with 2 days focused on subjects ranging from business modelling and lean strategy to customer discovery and profiling, offering key tools and practical advices on market and customers. On the 3rd, and final day, the art of storytelling and pitching will be approached, with teams having the opportunity of presenting their business ideas in front of investors who will give feedback on their work and the business perspective of development.

The CloudCatalyst consortium is excited for being able to share useful insights about the latest cloud market trends, competition benchmarks, critical success factors, and much more! The three bootcamps will be a unique opportunity to support start-ups and SME’s tracking the road towards business success.
