The Tech4Eva program allowed us to have valuable interactions with corporate mentors, meet other startup representatives and get a better picture of the European FemTech industry. Considering one of our main focuses are international expansion and corporate collaborations, the program was a great choice, and we highly recommend it.
The peer-to-peer sessions in particular punctuated nicely our progress and enabled us to feel supported in our entrepreneur journey. In addition, the superb selection of mentors led to very valuable connections and inputs that will be precious for IMMA's next stage.
Tech4Eva provided our team with great insights into the Femtech ecosystem. It was a pleasure to work with the Tech4Eva team who supported the cohort companies. Meeting and connecting with other companies in the same field was something that was very beneficial. We look forward to celebrating the future success of all cohort companies. Thank you Tech4Eva!
