Startupbootcamp is proud to announce the Startupbootcamp NFC & Contactless Demo Day on the 17th of January in Amsterdam.

Startupbootcamp is thrilled to announce Startupbootcamp NFC & Contactless Demo Day, which will take place in Amsterdam on January 17th 2014. The 10 high potential startups, from seven countries, that participate in Startupbootcamp NFC & Contactless have all developed products based on Wireless & Interactive technology. They focus on markets such as: The Internet of Things, Online & Mobile Marketing, Sports analytics, Retail & Loyalty Systems, Smart City & Security, The Pet Industry, Safety For Children, and The Food Industry. After 3 months of intense mentorship, inspiring workshops, product building, and customer validation, they are ready to pitch for an audience of 400+ investors. They will share their stories of acceleration, celebrate their successes, and reveal their strategies to disrupt the tech-industry. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to meet the startups personally, to see their product demos and discuss business- while enjoying lunch and drinks. Gerrit Zalm, CEO of ABN AMRO Bank, and Klaas Knot, President of De Nederlandsche Bank, will attend Demo Day as guests of honor. Klaas Knot will also be our keynote speaker for the event.

This page includes all information about Demo Day, the startups, and the guests of honor.

“Watching what Startupbootcamp has put together here at Demo Day, and what the investment community has supported, is world class. It’s spectacular – as good as I have ever seen.” Steve Blank, serial entrepreneur & author.

From First Class to World Class – The Startups

On October 14th 2013, 10 first-class startups started after being selected from over 250 applicants for the Startupbootcamp NFC & Contactless Program. These 10 companies, from 7 different countries, left their loved ones behind and boarded a plane to Amsterdam to be accelerated. Guided by our pool of top-level mentors, they have worked incredibly hard to become world class companies and make a dent in the universe. After 3 months of blood, sweat, and tears they’ll be ready; on Demo Day they will pitch their companies to an audience of VC’s, Angels, and Seed Investors. We proudly present the Startupbootcamp NFC & Contactless Class (click on the logos for more info):
