EVENTS' DYNAMICS

Each meeting is divided into 2 moments:

  • Orientation moment for the participants by the AHK team and and pitch of the startups;
  • Moment for prescheduled individual meetings between companies and startups.

The meetings take place online, through the Zoom platform.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE?

After pre-registration you will receive an email confirming the receipt of the information, after analysis of fit with the theme, a must-answer confirmation of participation will be sent within the deadline to guarantee a place in the meeting. The other guidelines will be provided by the AHK SP team after confirming the registration.

When confirming registration, companies and startups make the commitment that at least one member of their teams will be present during the pitch moments and scheduled meetings, as this is an event that requires prior organization, non-attendance implies gaps in the agendas of the participants, which hinders the smooth running of the event.

After approving the startups and confirming registrations, our team, together with members of the participating companies, evaluates which companies and startups are most compatible in terms of challenges and solutions. Thus, when scheduling meetings, we seek the highest possible quality in the connections to be established.
