It’s that time of year again…exactly…DEMO DAY time! We already celebrated our ninth edition of the “graduation” of our startups. After five months of dedicated work, sweat and tears when pitching to German publishers, broadcasters, media houses and agencies the teams finally cross the finishing line of the accelerator program (and are now part of our ever-growing alumni family). This batch was predominantly female, international and diverse: Seven startups, from eight different nationalities and 70 percent of the teams had at least one female co-founder.
Demo Day is the Grand Finale for us and our startups — it’s the big stage, the spotlight, the celebration of the achievements made during the intense months of the accelerator. Time to shine. We gather our international community of entrepreneurs, investors, media executives, mentors, friends and family. So cheers, here we go!
This little tickle in the guts, this excited tension, the joy in the air — this is the predisposition before rocking the stage. Oh, and our startups did rock it! Here are the highlights of an evening full of adrenaline and excitement:
“Hey, I’ m BotTalk” — it resonated from the speakers in the concert venue when the robot took over the pitch of Andrey from the startup of the same name. It continued “…be gentle with him he’s nervous and his English is not as good as mine”. The audience laughed and cheered instantly. Pitch Kick-off: Nailed!
