After that John told about LinguaTrip platform to his colleagues and connected Marina with the 500 Startups mentor Poornima Vijayashanker, for the opportunity to get into their accelerator. And although the set in the accelerator has already ended, the Poornima agreed to see the presentation of their company.

Fifteen thousand start-ups participated in the selection process, but only 30 projects were selected, including LinguaTrip. LT executives received one hundred thousand dollars for business development in exchange for shares of the company.
