“The online services provided by MVP Academy program are really supporting the business we develop. Having an industrial SaaS in our portfolio, we do need marketing tools for Box2M’s customer services delivery. When you design industrial IOT devices, you also need the engineering and process integration with 3PP IOT management platforms. Usually, you pay a lot for these tools, and an early-stage startup doesn’t always have the budget. It’s helpful for our business to be able to access those for free.”, said Alexandru Gliga, the founder of Box2M.
MVP Academy accelerator program is halfway through. Its purpose is to help the teams to validate their business strategy through workshops and weekly mentoring sessions with local and regional experts in the industry. From now on, the participants will work on their final pitches they will deliver in front of +500 tech professionals, mentors, entrepreneurs, investors and potential business partners that will join the final event of the program: MVP Academy Demo Day, happening on 8th of May, at Cinema Pro.
