Up2B Firecamp – mission accomplished: 12 startups accelerated

After 5 days of hard work, coaching and networking the performance of the teams at the Firecamp final in front of many investors was outstanding!

And the winners️ selected by five investors, are:
1st place: RefundRebel
2nd place: Updatu
3rd place: Friedhofsglück

Moreover, the startup EyeV won the audience award.
Congratulations to all the teams that participated in the Firecamp!

The feedback from Klaus Wächter, Chairman of the Business Angels Rheinland-Pfalz, makes us believe that the Up2B Accelerator is on the right track: „Great teams with high potential ideas and great organisation. I have already participated in many events as mentor/jury, this was by far the best event.“

Before the final, the twelve teams had the chance to talk to twelve corporates at the corporate speed dating and listen to the keynote of Rainer Hundsdörfer, CEO of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG.

After the long day, the startups deserved their long-awaited dinner and beer, with having the business cards of interested corporates and investors in their pockets. What a success!

During the Firecamp week, the Technologiepark HeidelbergStartup Mannheim & innoWerft – Technologie- und Gründerzentrum Walldorf Stiftung GmbH have successfully supported 12 startup teams and helped them entering the market as well as prepared them for an investment.

We would like to thank all visitors, the jury team, all mentors and the corporate representatives for the great support during the whole week!!!
