#Start2Meet Connecting Startups and Investors in a fun and innovative format

At SXSW this year I had a great time participating in this wonderful #Start2Meet event convening startups and investors in a very fun and innovative format (see below for more info).

This was organized by Babushka Digital, a leading Brazilian Digital Agency that has organized this type of activity many times in Brazil with great success.

As Babushka explains, in times of quick connections, Babushka created the #Start2Meet, a networking format to connect startups and investors at SXSW inspired in the speed dating.

Karol Andrêis and Leo Mereu, partners in Babushka, led the speed dating of business during the biggest event of technology, movies, music and digital content of the world.

More than 40 startup professionals could sold their ideas for 2 minutes to 15 investors in search of new business.

And the result is here. See how was the Start2Meet!
