Anna is the co-founder and former CEO of Innofest. A Foundation that helps startups to use festivals as a test environment. She is not new to the jury of Startup Weekend Groningen and made her last appearance in Startup Weekend Groningen 2017. We asked Anna as part of the jury because of her experience with innovative startups. If anyone knows if a bizarre idea has potential and how you bring that potential out it’s her. Innofest is known for lots of crazy prototypes, because validation is everything and the proof is always in the pudding.
