500 Startups and Sberbank, the largest bank in Russia and Eastern Europe, which is building an ecosystem in Russia, have created a joint accelerator. The accelerator has provided Silicon Valley growth education to a batch of young Russia-based companies, helping them to scale and fundraise.
A total of 840 applications were submitted to the program. Experts from 500 Startups, Sberbank, 25 corporate partners and investment funds selected the 30 strongest startups. Over two months, the teams learnt from their US mentors throughout this acceleration program.
Only seven startups won the Accelerator and got their chance to participate in the Silicon Valley Exchange program, meet high-innovative corporates, unicorns and potential partners.
Pitch Day is a FREE, invite-only event for active and accredited investors to view 500 Startups' and Sberbank's accelerator startups before they graduate.
We are setting aside time during the event for one on one meetings between investors and startups. This way you can be guaranteed face time with the companies you are interested in and have a chance to get all your questions answered. Details will follow after you register for the event.
