DEMO DAY 5: WE BEAT ALL RECORDS: MORE STARTUPS THAN EVER; MORE GUESTS THAN EVER.

#startups #pitch #accelerator #pitch #demoday

Our fifth Demo Day broke records. To celebrate the graduation of our biggest batch so far — with 9 teams — we managed to bring together the largest crowd ever: over 250 people came to Mindspace to our date to see the startups pitch and meet the co-founders.

As always, Demo Day is the best opportunity for us to gather our ever-growing community of investors, partners, media and publishing representatives, mentors and friends.

To kick-off the evening, we welcomed our special guests Kerstin Schiefelbein, CEO from Visual Statements, and Arnd Benninghoff (aka nma’s “godfather”), for a fireside chat about e-Sports.

Big thanks to our special guests, Kerstin and Arnd.

Pitches & Partners

Every Demo Day brings a bittersweet feeling: on the one hand, it is sad to say goodbye to the teams who have been working with us for the past six months. On the other hand, it is a time to celebrate their achievements. From improving the pitch to launching the products and getting test partners thanks to our network, we are proud to witness the success stories from our batch 5!
