Armenian Startup Academy Berlin
15 Armenian surprising startups participated at the Armenian Startup Academy Berlin (ASAB), which took place from September 3-10, 2017 in Berlin. ASAB included 4 days of intensive trainings on investor readiness, business modeling, pitching, marketing and sales, individual meetings with potential partners, clients, and investors. The culmination of ASAB week was the Armenian Startup Night on September 7, which turned into a real success gathering about 50 representatives, investors and guests of the German startup and innovation ecosystem. Many of them heard about Armenia the first time and were pleasantly impressed to discover the potential of the Armenian startup and innovation ecosystem and the Armenian startups present at ASAB during active interactions and networking, panel discussions and the film featuring Armenia with its potential for high tech and innovation development and the Armenian startups with their amazing products. There is a big potential for further cooperation and partnership to follow. ASAB was organised by SMEDA and BerlinerStrategen, a consulting company in Berlin.
