The Search for Suitable Startups.
We’ve already reported previously on Startupbootcamp, a long-time partner of Daimler Business Innovation and global idea accelerator — the global network of industry-specific promoters, or accelerators, who put Startups in touch with the most important and most influential networks in their segment. The success of the programs, which are currently based in cities such as Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Eindhoven, London, Barcelona, Singapore and Istanbul, speaks for itself: Out of the 210 Startupbootcamp alumni an astonishing 74% have raised an average of over half a million euros since 2010.
But how are potential candidates for the programs identified? What are the selection criteria? How are ideas evaluated? This is exactly where the scouts come in. With a view to the program in Berlin, we have spoken to Jens Hartwig, Stephan Gilles and Oliver Beige and would now like to show you what has to happen if a Startup is to benefit from promotion by Startupbootcamp.
