From a pool of 700 applicants, Signaturit was chosen as one of the top 11 to participate in the prestigious Startupbootcamp in Amsterdam.
This week we will move to Amsterdam for the 3 to 6 months acceleration program, which begins on March 31. The program focuses on exposing and connecting startups to distinguished mentors and advisors. At its completion, startups are given the opportunity to pitch to top angel investors and venture capitalists at Investor´s Demo Day on June 25, 2014.
We will be given access to over 750 mentors, who are innovators and experts possessing a wide range of specialties. The total value of the package is estimated to be at 450,000 euros. The Startupbootcamp Amsterdam program has an impressive track record; of their 60 accelerated startups to date, over 70% receive funding within 3 months of Demo Day. - Juan Zamora
We travelled to Amsterdam to participate in the Final Selection Days in late February to compete with the other 15 semi-finalists. Once there, during a grueling 2 days we pitched about 20 times to over 85 mentors, investors and SBC alumni. Finally a total of 11 startups were chosen, including Signaturit, based on a good team balance, product, technology, market potential and execution power.
In addition to saying goodbye to Barcelona, we also will say adieu to Incubio, the startup incubator specialized in big data, which has been our home for the past 7 months. The Incubio team has helped us to learn and grow, we will forever be grateful to this encouraging team.
