#startups #media #tech #accelerator #digital

Battery chargers, business cards, and Kölsch: these were basic items in the survival kit to make the best out of DMEXCO, the conference in Cologne bringing key players in the digital business, marketing and innovation together.

Startup Village: we felt at home.

For the 2018 edition, we had our own stand located in the heart of the Startup Village, the hall dedicated exclusively to gather over 150 startups building up tech solutions to innovate media, marketing and adtech industry.

Of course, we brought our own teams along: Spectrm, Platinum.Live, Contentflow, 23degrees and heysite joined us, and we also had the chance to catch up with AdTriba and Playgorithm. #familyreunion

What happens when you put two people that are listed among the top 100 attendees to have coffee with at DMEXCO together? It results in talks about digitalization, esports, influencer marketing and…fame 😎.

Our Managing Partner, Nico Lumma, and Julian Mohr, co-founder of Nqyer Media (from our batch 1) had a very serious talk in this video series by

Two days of networking, reuniting with friends and making new connections to strengthen our network of media innovators: mission accomplished at #DMEXCO18. ✔

“On both days we had the opportunity to talk to industry professionals from all areas and gain valuable feedback on the further development of our product. In addition, we were able to make initial contacts with potential B2B customers and exchange ideas with the other startups. It was extremely worthwhile for us and we are entering the final spurt of the batch with a lot of momentum.” Stephan Kinganamchira, co-founder at heysite (batch 7).
