Startup Secret Santa, an event of a new format, connected 19 startups and 19 mentors from Fintech and Blockchain domains on Dec 9th and 10th. All startups were asked to share their “Christmas wish” in the event onboarding form and our team was putting all efforts to make those wishes come true with our participating mentors. The mentorship officially began and Startup Secret Santa will be releasing more updates in February with each startup’s and mentor’s story.

2020 was a difficult year for many projects and Startup Secret Santa was able to show how many of those are willing to break through any challenges to build a successful startup. We are thankful to everyone who joined us for the event and supported our team throughout the event organization.

 “It was a great experience to be part of this event. We are excited to be shortlisted and we certainly look forward to working with our mentor who will help us bring our startup to the next level.” Jeremy Mah, co-founder & CEO at NeuXP
