During the recent HyeTech Showcase event in Silicon Valley on April 9th, founders from ten Armenia-based startups flew to California to join the Entrepreneur Immersion Program (EIP). Throughout the 10-day program, the entrepreneurs attended workshops, talks, and tours of top startups, investment funds, and accelerators from Los Angeles to Silicon Valley.
