German Entrepreneurs Pitch at Captivate Silicon Valley (10th Edition)

Redwood City, December 14, 2016

German Accelerator’s Q4 2016 cohort, represented by nine (!) of Germany’s top tech startups, successfully graduated from its three-month acceleration program with a final pitch at Captivate Silicon Valley.

The 10th edition of Captivate German Accelerator Silicon Valley was greater than ever when nine German tech companies presented on stage and received direct feedback from three top-notch angels and VCs. Once more, Captivate took place in the heart of Silicon Valley at HanaHaus on University Avenue in Palo Alto where German Accelerator welcomed around 130 guests from the local tech community. Being a guest at this special event one had the chance to take pictures at German Accelerator’s photo booth and participate and win cool prizes in the raffle.

On the stage, each startup had five minutes to present their business to the panel and the audience. After each pitch, the panel took over for a two-minute Q&A session in which tough questions were asked and the startups had the chance to shine.

The following startups presented themselves on stage:

DACS Laboratories

Moeve Bikes

Following each pitch, the expert panel featuring Veronica Wu (CSC Venture Capital), Robert Young (Angel) and Neda Blocha (Pear VC) provided business insights, along with challenging questions and astute feedback.

Throughout the night, attendees were provided with ample opportunities to expand their professional network, while engaging first-hand with Germany’s thriving startup environment.

Captivate SV offered plenty opportunities to mingle amongst mentors, founders and guests from the startup community.

Congratulations to Antelope, who was chosen by the audience to win the evening’s “Best Pitch Award”.

With that, we are wrapping up 2016 and are looking forward to our Silicon Valley cohort starting in January. The next Captivate Silicon Valley will take place on March 21, 2017.
