Win Win Win, BETAPITCH | Vienna Has Its Winners!

Yeah, it’s over. All the great work that the team of sektor5 has done, and all the incredible quality startups know the winner. Let’s see how it went. The 10 startups that were picked out of the applicants to pitch upfront the jury made a nice show. The composition was international, 3 of the pitching startups came from far Slovakia.

We’ve seen pitches of guys working in various fields - from services for conferences, smart homes, aggregator services to app that helps you crowdsource your birthday wish.

We were lucky to have the pitch trainers Marius and Philipp to train the startups all Friday afternoon, so at the betapitch finals at sektor5 we could enjoy their pimped and snappy pitches.

After the 10 pitches were over, the jury got tough time to make the decision and come up with the results. Although there were more startups on their winning shortlist, the winners can be only two. Therefore the startups who get the 1000eur, coworking @ sektor5 and various services to bootstrap the startup are:

Networker - the platform for networking at the events

Flatout - the services for smart homes, which automates the home management. The guys already know what they'll spend the money on - to rent a caravans  to camp at Cebit conference so they can open up their booth there.

Congrats to the winners, respect to the rest.

This is just the beginning, as the winning startups get the fasttrack to the betapitch| global (happening in Berlin, July 6th), where they will compete against the winners from the other betapitches from all over Europe. Here they have to prove their excellent pitching skills, bulletproof business models and make the awesome judges believe the business is viable and deserves the awesome prizes.

The winner takes it all!

We want to send a special thank you to styria digital, the local 'superhero' who made all of this possible! Thank you guys for making all this happen, the jury and the startups were just great and we are sure that this was not the last time we saw these teams pitching!

Make sure to join our Facebook Event and RSVP on Eventbrite, so we can put your name into our Happiness Jar. This birthday bash is all about our community, and together with our partners we've prepared a special Prize Draw.

Throughout the whole night, you will find the rooms of The Basement filled with art pieces from our favorite Berlin-based creatives. From illustrations to paintings to wooden sculptures and installations - we've made sure to host an inclusive Berlin-like mix of all things art. Let us introduce to you to some of the artists, who you will meet down in The Basement:

Have you met .. the Softblobs? Since moving back to Berlin from the US, Gesine Krätzner has been making strange creatures out of fabric that she calls Softblobs. They are cute, random, and they'll be waiting in The Basement if you want to try playing around with them.

From toys made of fabric, we’re moving onto wooden sculptures. Matt Danko knows how to bring wood to life and does it amazingly in his free time. In The Basement, he’ll show his latest furniture pieces and sculptures.

In the same room as Matt, you’ll find Lisa Büscher, who has prepared for us a hyper realistic sculpture presentation that gives it the touch of the extreme, surrealistic and absurd. She de- and reconstructs and reorganizes human bodies like Utopia does society.

In our Photo & Video room you will find works from Collette Pomerleau and Ocean.Now.

Colette is a Berlin-based creative working in photography, art direction and set design. Through her visuals she explores intimacy and anonymity. The space that falls somewhere in between.

Ocean. Now! is a collective that accelerates ocean protection. They work with different types of art to motivate our society to protect the Ocean -Now!

In the early afternoon, based in The Garden, you’ll meet Amaury BOUQUET. He’s a Berlin-based French artist from Saint Maur des Fossés, who has a background in social innovation and loves to play with symbols in his works. At 10 Years in beta, he’ll do his special Humanist Tarot readings from 4-6pm.

Parallel to him, also in The Garden, Sebastian Olivares will be painting live a special Mandala created for betahaus. Sebastian is a Berlin-based visual artist who specializes in painting mandala murals and has painted murals in Germany, Chile, Australia and Thailand.

Throughout the day ilan katin will be putting the party vibes onto a mural, specially created for betahaus. He's a Neukölln-based artist with experience in visual work, both static and performative, graphic design, illustration, comics, installations, animation and live video.

We think this one speaks for itself. If you need a little glitz or glitter to get you into the party spirit, come early and we'll do the rest.

Last, but not least, special thanks to our lovely partners who are helping us making this event happen.
Pilsner Urquell and Fritz Cola for the drinks, Emmy, Drivy, FrameRight, CoffeeCircle, Dream Facilitation, Moruga and BioWine for supporting our Prize Draw and our media partners from Silicon Allee, ASK HELMUT, Creative City Berlin and TechCode.
