Let’s rock Startups@Reeperbahn!
It will be hot in September in Hamburg, as international startups stir up the Reeperbahn Festival, bringing a huge amount of SXSW flair to our otherwise commercially-oriented Hanseatic city! It’s all happening at our second Startups@Reeperbahn event, which is taking place as part of the Reeperbahn Festival: startups from all over Europe will have the opportunity to pitch to investors, media representatives and other startup stakeholders in a dimly-lit, neighbourhood atmosphere. Then things get intimate – the investors will be able to arrange to meet with founders for a business tête-à-tête in one of our love-mobiles which will be parked in front of the event venue. There’ll then be a joint celebration in good neighbourhood style.
Startups@Reeperbahn 2013 – a resounding success: last year, national startups were given an extraordinary pitch opportunity for the first time: a Hamburg stage on which to stoke their entrepreneurial flames: five selected startups presented to a full house in Planet Pauli. Investors and startups were then invited to a real „hourly-rate hotel“, the perfect place to do business „with passion“. The response was tremendous and demanded MORE.
What will round two involve? On 18.9.2014, we’re inviting our five finalist startups believed to be ready to take the stage by our Board of Trustees to join the Club Hamburg at the Startups@Reeperbahn pitch event, followed by a large networking event. As there’ll be international visitors and startups, the pitch will of course be in English. The „en-suite rooms“ will become our „start-up love-mobiles“. What’s so exciting is that we’ll also use the love-mobiles at our blind-date mentoring days. Find further details here.. Our panel of experts will choose the winning startup, which will receive the SPIEGEL ONLINE PRIZE – a media budget of EUR 100,000. We present an extensive supporting programme for startups and investors, with first-class talks and captivating panels. It will certainly be exciting! Therefore an Reeperbahn Festival Conference Ticket is needed.
