On the 27th of May I got the opportunity to be an observer on the first Pitch Day for the Startupbootcamp in Berlin. The event took place in The Rainmaking Loft.

Pitch Days are informal events used as a part of the screening process to discover the hottest startups for our 2014 Startupbootcamp Berlin accelerator program. The selected teams will be given a chance to pitch to the Startupbootcamp team, receive instant feedback from our mentors, and learn more about the Startupbootcamp program.

The focus for the current program is Smart Transportation & Energy – the connected and efficient movement of people and goods.

Below a summary of the startups that pitched:

This a Slovanian Startup that claims to have an alternative for an airconditining that uses only 10% of the power of regular usage. Very promising and I am looking forward to test the product in my own office.

Berlin Shuttle
