Amsterdam, 19 March 2020 – Startupbootcamp, a global network of industry-focused acceleration programs, is proud to announce the international teams that will take part in its Commerce Accelerator in Amsterdam. The Commerce 2020 cohort at Startupbootcamp features startups from 7 different countries. The top companies were selected out of nearly 392 applications from startups in commerce and technology.
The startups for the Commerce 2020 program are:
PayByFace (the Netherlands)
More relevant than ever are solutions that limit the physical interaction at checkouts. PayByFace focuses on quick retail payments through Facial recognition.
Customer returns and overstock are expensive; the current processes to manage them are not sustainable. Rebolet is offering an all-in-one system to turn returns and overstock into sustainable profits by processing, analysing and reselling items.
Delloop is improving commerce experience through traceable shipment with a new customer experience.
Whering (United Kingdom)
Fashion is one of the most polluting industries globally. Whering has built a solution to digitize your wardrobe, and is making conscious fashion spending possible.
Nokues enables customers to order, pay and pick up their orders without queueing.
Omnic (the Netherlands)
It is getting more difficult to attract customers in a time where ‘online’ keeps improving and growing. Omnic is offering the best of the online experience to your offline retail stores.
Calculating quotes for the production of heterogeneous products or services can be a very time consuming ordeal, often solved through endless excel sheets. Smidyo is solving this with simple online tools.
Fearing scams or damaged products, people are hesitant to buy expensive products from the second market. Yinper is solving this by using authorized experts to check the products.
COVID-19 adjustments – online first
Given the current global concerns around COVID-19, adjustments have been made regarding our Selection Days and Commerce program: online first. We believe it is the right thing to do for the safety of all startups, our team, investors, clients & partners, mentors and all other attendees.
The selected teams were chosen in an online selection process during Startupbootcamp Selection Days on the 17th and 18th of March. The startups pitched their solutions online to various experts from Startupbootcamp and partners.
The Startupbootcamp Commerce Program is the leading accelerator for startups disrupting the commerce industry. The new 2020 Commerce cohort will work towards Demo Day. The teams will directly benefit from the support of industry experts, mentors, investors and corporate partners in the Startupbootcamp network. After completing the accelerator program, the startups will be supported by the Startupbootcamp Alumni Growth Program. For more information visit our Commerce program webpage.
This program will be driven by Program Director Douwe Bart Mulder from Startupbootcamp:
‘’After an intensive scouting and selection process we are excited to announce the selected startups. Together with our team, business partners, mentors and investors, we are ready to kick-off this journey. We are looking forward to accelerate and grow together. Extra special for this program is of course that we are starting in a completely online-first environment.’’
