The 4 winning teams were selected from 10 finalists and received intensive trainings to be able to turn their idea into a business plan and pitch it. During the last 4 months, Berytech helped each startup develop its action plan with regular follow ups and monitoring. The teams received individual coaching sessions addressing their business plan and marketing strategy. Being part of the incubation program at Berytech, the startups benefit from the access to national and international networks, venture capital funds, a database of coaches and mentors, an access to a whole cycle of trainings and of course will continue to receive support in the future beyond the timeframe of the program.
Of the winning teams is Guidentity, a project aiming at teaching history, geography and sciences through field activities. Their participation in the competition allowed them to transform their idea into a company currently training its first batch of program guides.
