After which a number of start-ups of SEMIA gave a testimony on how they developed their ideas and were supported by SEMIA (one medical application and a Blockchain application, both operational now). This gave the MSS students the chance to ask a number of relevant questions.
After these presentations the different MSS teams gave a dry run of their pitch to SEMIA experts who gave them useful professional hints, in preparation of the Business Plan competition that will take place at the end of the elective, also in cooperation with SEMIA, in the jury.
