The event provided excellent networking opportunities, enabling us to establish connections with potential partners and investors. The speeches, group discussions, and workshops led by industry experts expanded our knowledge of the latest trends and technological strategies. Additionally, we found inspiration in the success stories and gained practical skills for developing a strong and sustainable startup ecosystem in the Republic of Moldova.
This positive reception at How to Web not only validated Moldova’s presence in the regional startup ecosystem but also inspired local founders to pursue their goals with passion and determination.
The participation in the event was organized by Startup Moldova, with support from USAID Moldova, the Embassy of Sweden in Chisinau, and UKAid.
