We had swipes (CGN), zenguard (BLN), statace (SOF), solarbrush (BLN), farmhopping (SOF), get2play (HH), diagsum (BCN), bikway (CPG), goeuro (BLN), permondo (HH), preplounge (CGN), reputami (CGN), lionsharp (SOF), getnetworker (VIE), flatout (VIE), on stage.
As you can imagine, the jury had a hard time deciding which team is most suited for what prize because as the competitors had high potential, the rewards were no less spectacular. The decision phase was well used by the guests who found their way down to the BBQ and enjoying the smooth betajam by Jaschar!
After an one hour discussion amongst the jurymembers we announced the winners: Most successful was statace from betahaus | Sofia an online statistical system. The team won 6 month of free space at betahaus | Berlin, 10.000€ cash sponsored by hub:raum and two weeks at the startup mansion blackbox.vc to check out the Silicon Valley.
A one way ticket (!) to the Silicon Valley as well as a 3 month program at plugandplaytechcenter was given to the E-Learning software for music instruments get2play grown up at betahaus | Hamburg.
The blindness preventing software diagsum will get a wildcard to the next hub:raum accelerator program. Last but not least, mailjet sponsored a trip to Paris to bikway, a startup from Copenhagen that offers an easy and affordable way to plan, test and implement biking infrastructure.
But despite the competition the betapitch| global was a thriving evening with lots of interesting and cool people to meet and share ideas.
We are looking forward to the next round! Stay tuned!
A special thanks goes to Heisenberg Media who took the most awesome pictures!
