It's time to start polishing up those pitches as the Berlin scene hots up for a series of events that will let your company display its chops in front of the movers, shakers (and hopefully investors) in the city's business scene.
And news just in of a special love-in between coworking space Betahaus and startup accelerator Startupbootcamp. The winner of the Betahaus Betapitch event will automatically earn a fast-track to be interviewed for a spot on the coveted Startupbootcamp programme. Here's how...
Not content with hosting the hottest Berlin Tweetup of the year on Friday, our favourite coworking space Betahaus is gearing up for its annual Betapitch event, which sees startups get a chance to win six months' free coworking space, as well as lots of other greatly needed bootstrapping resources.
The event, held on 3 May, will see prospective pitchers present in front of a jury that includes representatives from Monster, CloudControl, Immobilienscout24 and Betterplace.org, as well as an audience of guests.
From the ten teams that will be presenting on the day, the winner will not only receive coworking space and support from Betahaus, but also fast-tracked onto a shortlist of 20 for Startupbootcamp, the European programme recently launched in Berlin that offers startups a tidy 100 days of free office space, funding and mentorship before pitching to next-stage investors. So who knows, in four months' time you could find yourself CEO of a fully funded startup.
There's still time to register for a spot at Betapitch – just send a one-page application to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight on 20 April. Los gehts!
