In the context of the HiReach Startup Lab, HiReach has successfully conducted a one-week bootcamp in Vienna that helped entrepreneurs to deliver solutions to transport poverty problems. On 17-21 February 2020 several project representatives met at Impact Hub Vienna premises, where a selection of top 23 startups were involved and learned about business model innovation, startup methodologies and tools, got additional product validation, defined the value proposition and prepared a business case.
