The most important step in the entrepreneurship journey is when startups pitch their ideas and business in front of investors. For the first time in Macedonia, during Demo Day, 14 startups stood on stage, in order to get that initial investment. The startups were part of the first pre-acceleration program by Seavus Incubator. They went through the 8-week program consisting of 11 lectures, and hundreds of one-on-one mentoring with 15 experts. This public event was successful closure of the program. The Jury consisting of Kostandina Zafirovska, COO at Seavus, Toni Trpkovski, Division Manager at Seavus, and Alan Schaaf, founder and CEO at Imgur chose Gordian Systems as best one. Optimal Reinsurance Management came as second, and Rezerviraj.mk as third best startup.
The last week of the pre-acceleration program was dedicated on pitching sessions, in order to prepare the startups for meetings with investors and for the Demo Day. We had the honour to host Edi Demaj, serial entrepreneur, who worked with the startups.
