)-- VROOM announces the spring 2017 VROOM Caravan Challenge, which will take place in eight cities in eight countries, culminating with finalists presenting their innovative and disruptive ideas in Monaco, April 27, 2017 at VROOM Summit. VROOM Summit invites accelerators and investors to network and share ideas in the intimate and beautiful principality of Monaco.
The concept behind the VROOM Caravan Challenge is simple. VROOM Caravan announces a challenge date to start-up communities seeking investments in key cities. Start-ups submit their pitch to VROOM and the selected qualified top ten are invited to present their big idea to a visiting VROOM panel, who select one winner from each city. Each finalist is invited to VROOM Summit to showcase their business proposition to tech industry investors and the Cote d’Azur investment community, in Monaco. White Castle Partners is the founder and organizer of VROOM Caravan Challenge and VROOM Summit.
Allianz Accelerator is the main partner of the 2017 VROOM events. At the heart of the Allianz Riviera stadium in Nice, France, the Allianz Accelerator supports the growth of innovative, promising start-ups by offering them an intensive 5-month acceleration programme benefiting from a network of mentors and experts, backers and major investors and given structured assistance in their development.
Attending VROOM Summit, start-ups will have the opportunity to meet investors in an intimate environment amidst the plush and prestigious backdrop of Monaco. Equally, investors will have the opportunity to listen to finalist start-ups share their big and bold ideas.
