Amsterdam, December 18th 2014 – On January 23th 2015 Startupbootcamp hosts the E- & Mcommerce Demo Day. At this event, ten selected startups will pitch their business to investors. The event will take place at Rabobank’s headquarters in Utrecht. Keynotes will be given by John MacFarlane (Sonos) and Cees Links (GreenPeak).
Startups are ambitious but, according to research, inaccessible funding and bureaucracy stand in their way. That’s why accelerator Startupbootcamp offers startups an international network of relevant partners, investors and mentors. In three months, startups are being prepared to deliver the ultimate pitch at Demo Day E- & Mcommerce. The goal: raising funding to kick-start their business.
- John MacFarlane is founder and CEO of Sonos, a fully integrated wireless HiFi-system. Sonos was founded in 2002 and has raised 118 million dollars since then. Their estimated sales for 2014 are over one billion dollars. On Demo Day, John MacFarlane will show how the company managed to go from a startup to a rival of the major home entertainment suppliers.
- Cees Links is founder and CEO of GreenPeak. Links is also the pioneer of the WiFi-connection. GreenPeak provides products for smart homes and was recently announced winner of the Deloitte Technology Fast50. It reached a growth of 8757 percent in 2014. How did they do it?
