On Tuesday, November 27th, the Startupbootcamp Berlin Investor Demo Day took place in Umspannwerk, Berlin – Kreuzberg followed by networking between Investors and the Teams at Webworker Berlin. The room was filled to capacity with more than 500 guests, including high profile investors from Index Ventures, Hack FWD, Connect Ventures, and Point Nine. The event began as Alex Farcet, founder of SBC Berlin, took the stage for a brief introduction. Soon after, the show was underway, with each team presenting phenomenal pitches after brief introductions from their mentors.
After all the teams presented, investors were invited to join the teams in the office for live demo’s and deeper discussions about their business. All guests then joined the teams for the after party, where Alex announced the winners of the Buzz Awards, Weavly, Capsule.fm and Credport, as voted for by the public. The prize is a trip to the amazing South by South West conference in Austin, Texas.
The City of Berlin has partnered with TOA to send these 3 startup CEOs to the South by Southwest festival in Austin Texas next year. The startups will be part of a delegation sent by the Berlin Senate to represent Berlin at the festival as part of the “log in berlin” campaign. We’re excited that Lindenpartners, Eventbrite and Startupbootcamp will each contribute €2,000 to cover half the cost of the trip. The senate of Berlin will match the cost of trip.
