This is where participants can find general information about the event, including schedule, agenda, sponsors and speaker information.

Virtual MASTERCLASSES AND WORKSHOPS running according to the agenda.
Up to 500 people can watch a session and up to 9 can interact at the same time with the stage. All sessions are moderated by the organizer.
Participants can watch the live session and interact with the stage for questions, rating/voting or answering polls – depending on the session
Virtual booths are accessible from the HALL OF FAME menu on the left side. From their virtual booths Startup INVEST partners and sponsors can interact with virtual participants. Virtual interactions:
Check THE ELEVATOR menu option on the left side to access our networking area. Participants jumping in the elevator will get to 1:1 short meetings with other virtual participants. Connection is random so you don’t know who will be on the other side. Conversations will last from 30 to 180 seconds and you can leave them anytime. If both parties are interested on sharing contact information the system will show the button CONNECT and a virtual business card will be stored in their profiles once both participants have chosen to connect.
Use the chat/poll function on the right to interact with other virtual participants but also to ask your questions on the sessions.
Note: if you are on a session you can choose if you want to chat with the people in the session room (Session chat) or with all virtual participants (General chat)
