The team of 3D-Revoprint (Germany) used the Micro-Grant to attend one of Europe’s biggest tech events for startups, Slush in Helsinki. They were selected as one of the TOP 100 startups which gave them the opportunity to pitch in front of a huge audience.
Yottabyte (Croatia) was able to attend the EBAN Winter University 2015 in Copenhagen. In the words of Krunoslav Hrnjak from Yottabyte
“Attending the EBAN Winter 2015 thanks to the ePLus Micro-Grant was fundamental to make new contacts with potential partners and business angels. I am right now discussing a new project setup with one of the EBAN startup competition participant. For us it was a great opportunity to discover more about how business angels and joint venture capital behave and what they are looking for.”
