Eli also spent the end of the week participating in the jury at Uplift Albania. The second batch of the acceleration programme offered 4 months of training sessions with industry experts and mentors, networking opportunities and cash prizes for the best companies and founders.
„It was a great pleasure to participate in the second batch of the Uplift acceleration programme both as a mentor and as a jury member alongside international experienced experts from the industry. The companies made a significant progress during the programme and managed to successfully convey their business idea and investment opportunity. I strongly believe that the companies will have strong and successful businesses in the regional market if they continue to pursue their ideas, Several of them showed real potential to compete with their innovative ideas and products also in the international environment“, said Eli.
