The main goal is to define realistic short-, mid- and long-term strategies for their companies and to outline the next steps for each project included in their company slates.
    Selected teams will have tailor-made curated meetings with a series of WEMW Business Angels, and will receive advice on co-production, financing, marketing and distribution, according to the primary needs of their projects and slates. More info at the following link.
