About Huge Thing

About 2015 Edition

We decided on the reactivation of Huge Thing as an accelerator in 2015

During the 3-week program, they have attended many workshops and individual sessions with world-class experts. Startups were working on business models, learnt how to attract clients, and which metrics are worth observing; they gained knowledge about legal aspects of running a business and listened to stories about entrepreneurs, who have benefited from an accelerator program abroad. They learned the differences between startups from the U.S. and Poland. Each week of the program was wrapped up by a pitch. Tailoring presentations to a specific situation was one among many other aspects they worked on. Furthermore, topics such as UX, pricing, and the importance of timing in business were discussed.

HugeThing.vc has managed to attract mentors such as Andrea Barrica (Partner in 500 Startups), Frauke Mispagel (Axel Springer Plug and Play accelerator), Marc Wesselink (StartupBootcamp), Greg Pietruszyński (Growbots), Janusz Berta or Konrad Latkowski (co-founder of Startup Poland).
