What to expect
Preparation & Mentoring Week
In the virtual preparation and mentoring week, you will learn more about the data and services of the Copernicus program. Further, you will work remotely and flexibly on your prototypes showcases for the demo day. Data access is provided via Virtual Machines (VMs) and there are regular check-ins with technical- and Copernicus experts as well as with Pioneers consultants, to fine tune your prototype and final presentation. You can schedule your time freely during that week and if you feel you need to do some pitch poloshing during the weekend, you will still have access to the data provided by ONDA dias.
On Monday 28th (afternoon), all participants will virtually showcase their prototype to a selected jury of Copernicus and data analytics experts as well as a broader audience. Pioneers is offering pitch polishing to all aspiring entrepreneurs in the morning!
