Who should attend?

  • The Everest program consists of advanced working sessions where entrepreneurs have the chance to test their assumptions and hypotheses while working through problems within their startups.
  • These startups not only have a prototype/ beta or minimum viable product (MVP), but also have a team, some customer validation, and some traction.
  • Please note that to benefit from the peer-to-peer nature of these sessions, all attendees are expected to engage and remain for the full session.
