Online Startup Idea Fest: Build and Share Ideas with Potential Customers

To help, we are hosting an "Online Startup Idea Fest" - an interactive online conference that starts with a short presentation on the best practices for forming and validating business ideas, followed by a long networking session where you can share your startup ideas for feedback with other attendees.
