GROWBY - the official chatbot
A first-of-its-kind AI Chatbot, Growby helps launch startups by assisting and mentoring teams before, during, and after the program.
Startups in our program validate their ideas quickly to avoid wasting time on a product nobody wants. Teams meet their potential customers right on the city streets of Turin to see if their ideas will hold-up.
Startups present their ideas and solutions to all other participants, mentors and visitors at our public Startup Exposition. Teams will need to pitch their product while responding to questions to gain feedback from industry professionals and fellow peers.
