We traveled to Helsinki, Finland, along with a delegation of five high-impact technology-based companies from Buenos Aires that had the opportunity to be part of the world's largest innovation event, to link up with potential partners or investors.
Together with more than 20,000 people in the field of technology, including founders, investors, pioneers of new companies and enthusiasts, they were trained, received personalized mentoring and took advantage of a customized meeting agenda to position their companies in foreign markets.
