To strengthen the culture of investing in startups in Georgia, BTU has planned a masterclass for Angel Investor Jean Hammond, a resident of MIT, the world’s highest-ranking university.
Hammond will hold a special masterclass for Georgian investors and startups in the format of the event planned by the Global Startup Fund at BTU in May 2021.
Jean Hammond is an active Angel Investor who holds the Hans Severiens Award, the highest award in the US startup ecosystem. He founded LearnLaunch, Edinno, Quarry Technologies, and AXON Networks, one of the largest accelerators in the world. His 20 years of experience as a serial entrepreneur include investing in high-tech startups, membership in Launchpad Venture Group and Hub Angels, and many other activities.
After joining the MIT Entrepreneurial Network at the Martin Trust Center at the University of Business and Technology, attending the masterclass will be free for all registered startups and investors. The theme of the masterclass is the forms of financing startups at an early stage, and their commercialization and development in international markets.
The Global Startup Fund is a unit based in BTU, established in partnership with Israel Silicon Wadi Angel Investors.
Today, the fund brings together investors from the United States, various European countries, and now Georgia. The Fund is supported by the Georgian Innovation and Technology Agency. The fund is a partner of TBC Startup, which has created a special investment loan for startups to facilitate access to finance.
