“Our team got really good
feedback, which is one of the most important things for early-phase start-ups,”
says one of the last Kaleidoskoop’s finalists Jürgen Jürgenson, CEO of Pürg. “We
also found couple of mentors who are still in contact with us and always ready
to answer our questions”. Other finalists in spring where real estate renting platform Konku, Climate Kic Launchpad Europe winner Gleather, hiring service HireHunt ect.
Kaleidoskoop takes place in two rounds. The first round of Kaleidoskoop will take place on 7th December at UT IdeaLab. Then the 10 best teams will be selected to participate in the finals at the international business festival Startup Day on 9th December. In both rounds teams will have 2 minutes to pitch their idea and 5 minutes to answer the jury’s questions.

NGAL 3.0 Tartu camp: learning, working hard and getting new experiences!
As the first and second day were full of interesting talks and valuable lessons, we decided to put some more focus on teamwork and getting things done during the next days. However, those days were full of new experiences: meetings with experienced investors, lecture on history, tour at SPARK and University of Tartu, trying out Estonian sauna and visiting Narva, the easternmost point of EU!
