At SBC Amsterdam we like to mix work with fun so it was clear from the start that the second mentor gathering on the 31st of May just had to be followed by local food and drinks, carefully selected by our international teams.
Next to networking with mentors and startups, the goal of the meeting was to discuss one main challenge each team is facing (specific problem, partnership, etc.) with all attending mentors. First, the teams pitched and presented their potential problems to an audience of our problem-solving specialist. Next, the feast of local food and drinks provided a great opportunity for brainstorming, discussing and trouble-shooting. Some of the delicacies served included Belgian chocolates, Spanish Serrano ham and tortilla, Indian chicken curry, Dutch cheese or even Polish vodka
