Innovation Labs challenges you!

All that short duration tech entrepreneurship events you are used to participate are nice, but what about one that will offer you the major differentiation of having a 10 weeks follow-up aiming to help you transform an innovative idea in an elaborated and ready to be pitched tech product/service through interaction with mentors and peers?
