Startupbootcamp ran a program exclusively for startups that offer innovative solutions based on Near Field Communications & Contactless Interactions Technologies. Startupbootcamp NFC & Contactless, which was situated in Amsterdam, kicked-off in October and ran until January 2014.
The 10 participating companies, from 7 different countries, were guided by a pool of top-level mentors and worked incredibly hard to make a dent in the universe.
