On Monday 14th, May, Startupbootcamp Amsterdam Sneak Preview for investors took place at SBC office located in the Vodafone HQ. The number of attending guests quickly went up to 28 and some angel investors even flew all the way from the UK.
Fascinating to see so much progress in such as short time. Startup Bootcamp is truly international with ten very diverse, creative teams. Yet the goal is the same -to build a powerful world-class company in record time. Privileged to see these raw diamonds and help polish their ideas for a sparkling presentation in July.

Over 3 days I visited 6 accelerators in 3 cities, and I must say that the quality of the pitches at SUB Amsterdam was right up there at the top, even though the teams were only 5 weeks in…I’m expecting really good things!
It was great to see the progress the ventures are making, but also still have to make. Already looking forward to next sneak peak!

Excellent organisation, strong teams, great ideas, amazing progress in 6 weeks and excited to see the progress made over the next 6 weeks. A highly valuable day.
Patrick de Zeeuw: “It’s about the pain they’re solving”
SBC Amsterdam’s co-founder kicked off the event by explaining that during the first weeks of the program the teams were encouraged to talk to as many potential clients as possible in order to test the market need for their products. The responses were overwhelmingly positive and the teams can now concentrate on developing their products, knowing that they will indeed be solving existing market pains.
Eight teams gave an exclusive presentation of the products and services they have been working on since the start of the program on April 10th. The day ended with drinks which provided the teams and investors with an opportunity to exchange thoughts and to socialize. The official Investor Demo Day will take place on July 6th. This will be the real test for the teams since they will be competing for investment opportunities.
