Dear friends,

We understand that most of you experience difficulties connected to the outbreak of covid-19. As entrepreneurs and risk-takers, we have to stay strong and support each other as much as we can to go through these turbulent times. Therefore, we have to stay positive and continue our activities.

Startup Bootcamp has NOT been cancelled nor postponed for now. In case we see that the situation is not improving by August 2020, we will reschedule the event and vote collectively for a new date, that will be suitable for the majority of participants. As we start pre-bootcamp acceleration activities already now, all the onboarded participants will get a chance to open up new opportunities for their business using the power of our online network before the event as a special bonus from InnMind to aid startup founders with current business traction.

We recommend everyone to stay positive and look for opportunities hidden behind the inevitable challenges. Stay healthy and keep innovating together with us!

Sincerely yours,
InnMind Team
