January 17th was Investor Demo Day for Startupbootcamp’s NFC & Contactless Class from Amsterdam. After a 100-day inspiring, amazing, euphoric and entrepreneurial roller-coaster ride, last Friday the intense journey ended with a spectacular day @ the ABN AMRO HQ. The selected companies showcased their ambition to change the world, their brilliant inventions and world-class teams for an audience of 350 investors.
The past 3 months they have been working incredibly hard with one goal in mind: achieve more for their business during the program, than they could ever do on their own in a year. And we think they did. In fact, from a business traction and funding point of view this was Startupbootcamp’s best program so far. But we’d love to show you the exact facts and figures from the past 100 days, so see for yourself:
And now for the absolute highlight of the three-month program: Investor Demo Day. We think it was a spectacular, energetic, inspiring, nerve wracking, moving and most of all memorable ending to a crazy 3 months. You can read what others thought about it in FD, Emerce, Telecompaper, NuZakelijk, StartupJuncture and YoungStartup or check out the video below and the item on Waypoint-Holland Channel IT, a South Korean television show. You can also download our Startupbootcamp Amsterdam App to see all the pitches and check the pictures of the event here. Scroll down for a selection of tweets from our amazing audience, so that you can experience the vibe and energy of the day.
So what’s next for the NFC & Contactless Class? The past months were only the beginning to the great journey and the best is yet to come! Here’s a selection of what’s been written about them in the past week on The Next Web, Tech Crunch, Gizmag, Emerce, Metronieuws, Bright.nl and Les Echos and we’re sure that you’ll be hearing a lot from more them in the near future. So keep an eye on these world-class startups: Beestar, Buzzoek, MobyPark, Relayr, TagaPet, Tag’by, TagTagCity, TapTrack, Watcher Enterprises and YES.TAP.
