Finally the day has come. Tomorrow SBC Berlin’s Selection Event will take place at Startupbootcamp’s headquarters in Berlin. The best 20 Teams, chosen from more than 300 applicants, are traveling to Berlin from all over the world to convince the Startupbootcamp team and more than 50 mentors and investors that they should be the ones participating in the 3 month acceleration program starting in September.
One thing is certain. There won’t be a lack of diversity during the Selection Event. Team members attending the event are from 15 different countries such as the US, Russia and India.
The teams will speak to more than 50 mentors from Germany, Denmark, Italy and the Netherlands. Together with the startupbootcamp team, the mentors will advice and evaluate the teams.
What’s going to happen at the event?
Two minute pitches
Alex Farcet, Co-founder of Startupbootcamp and Managing Director in Berlin, will start off the event by welcoming everyone on Friday afternoon. After that, each team will give a two minute pitch to introduce themselves and their product to the mentors an investors.
The mentors will then be paired together and will have 15 minutes speed dating sessions with each team. This will help them to really get to know the teams and evaluate them later.
The Final 10 Teams for the program will be announced on Saturday Night!
What else is cool about the event?
Startupbootcamp is happy to announce that Mike Butcher, from Tech Crunch Europe, will be giving a talk at the event.
There is also going to be more than 4000 Energy drinks, real authentic turkish food (Kreuzberg-style) and home baked cake.
