The competing startups at BETAPITCH Global did not leave the jury with an easy job. Nine different innovative ideas and nine fierce pitches – who would the jury choose for what prize?
Originally there were five prizes: 5000 EUR, a trip to Silicon Valley, 6 months betahaus membership and 2 crates of beer. But during the jury deliberation, it became clear that another prize should be added. The jury thought their chosen winner, Compocket, would benefit greatly from a trip to Shenzhen and they wanted to get them there. Only one issue, they needed to find funding.
This is when Google for Entrepreneurs stepped in. Their aim is to support entrepreneurs by creating spaces for them to learn, work and grow. Jury member Mayra Frank from Google for Entrepreneurs came up with the solution – they were gonna sponsor the second prize winner VRET’s trip to Silicon Valley. Which made it possible for betahaus to fly Compocket to Shenzhen.
So THANK YOU Google for Entrepreneurs for helping us support startups further and to make the event even more exciting! We will make sure that next year’s Investors Day & BETAPITCH Global will be the entrepreneurial dream day!
