Vouchers for knowledge and technology
The mission in Curaçao was also the occasion to meet the whole team of the pilot project “Startup launchpad”: the Curaçao Innovation and Technology Institute (CITI) members, the finalists and the jury from the rounds of competition.
OCTA Innovation team leader Milan Jezic von Gesseneck worked with them on the results already obtained and on what is planned for the second part of the implementation of the pilot project.
The Start-up Launch pad offers businesses in the start-up stage a chance to participate and win Technology, Knowledge and Support vouchers to invest in their company. This is in addition to an extensive mentoring and coaching program and the exposure their business will get in the local media. There are three rounds of competitions. The winner of the final will get the chance to compete on an international level.
