About the event
#ConnectOpportunities is the event where we explore growth opportunities for startups and SMEs and we bring into the spotlights the organizations that play an active role in the ecosystem.
This time around we invited two startups that are the forefront of digitalization of retail, a trend that was accelerated by the current context. In the same time, both startups bring business value to their customers and partners, operating in the B2B sector.
We will also explore the value that Microsoft is adding to their accelerated growth and how can your B2B startup access the opportunities of Microsoft for Startups Program.
