Several new businesses have been invited to present their product or service to the CapCHI community. Each entrepreneur will have five minutes to introduce their company and underline some of the key challenges they have faced in the first few years since launch. Following each presentation will be a short question period, and later in the evening there will be time to meet the presenters to discuss their challenges in greater detail.
