On July 15th betahaus | Hamburg held its BETAPITCH competition! 10 promising startups, 10 exciting pitches, a top-class jury, and a full betahaus.
The winner is PeerAce, a startup that hadn’t previously hit the headlines and thus gives us further proof that there are many hidden champions in the startup scene. PeerAce is a community marketplace where people can find personal fitness or sports trainers and offer their own services as a trainer to others. No long-term contracts and an easy way to get to know other sports-minded people around. Congratulations PeerAce, we’re looking forward to having you at BETAPITCH | global in Berlin on August 29th!
