Before he left CERN, alumnus Mait Müntel started looking into how he might be able to teach himself french more efficiently. With time, this lead to him found Lingvist, a start-up using machine learning to help people learn languages quicker. The company has now gathered over 10m EUR in funding and is growing rapidly.
Through one of Techstars three-month-long accelerators, Lingvist grew its network of contributors, partners and investors. This Thursday, Mait and Jose Iglesias, Director at Techstars for Europe, Middle East & Africa, sit down and talk about what Techstars is, how CERN Alumni Mait benefited from it, and when and how you should apply to a tech-stars accelerator program.
The event is open for CERNies and CERN alumni.
