Startup Crash Test is an event aimed at “stress testing” the market strategies, business models, distribution, roadmaps, etc. of technology startups. This event is designed to offer entrepreneurs a platform to tell about your project to other entrepreneurs, to receive feedback from an audience, to find partners, and to develop your network. In general, the requirements for startups:

– MVP, prototype or first small sales;
– some beginning investments could be own startup money;
– the desire to pitch, answer questions and be open to collaboration.

At the beginning one of the experts, leaders in Startup ecosystem speak 10 minutes (+10 minutes of Q&A) about anything which could be helpful for startuppers. It could be advice how to create a team, how to fundraise money or some motivational speech. Afterwards, three projects pitch their idea/startup, which includes 5 minutes of presentation, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.

This event is a good opportunity for startuppers to present, for the public to hear new startups (early stage), for investors – to check the market and if they like – to invest. Also pitching and Q&A in English are great things for startuppers and community.

For whom

For startup founders, developers, marketing specialists, and investors in early-stage startups.

Many tech teams working independently, have created or will develop solutions, but feel lack of insights and deep understanding of many different points. Simultaneously, companies have needs of new technologies and approaches. All of them need a place to meet and discuss what do they think of each other.

We believe that Startup Crash Test Milan is a meeting point and communication hub for startups, entrepreneurs, investors and representatives of the digital innovation business.

The event has free and paid tickets.

Initially, the event was held in 2008 in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. And for over 8 years we have discussed hundreds of ideas and concepts and have opened doors into the tech world for many of today’s successful companies.
