My pick of the Top 10 Startups of the ChallengeUP IoT Accelerator

Paul Chen

Throughout this week at the Hubraum facility in Krakow, startup teams have been receiving valuable mentorship from experienced professionals from Twitter, Cisco, Intel, and Deutsche Telekom.  In general, the mentors are quite impressed by the maturity of this batch of startups.

Min-Kin Mak, Head of hub:raum Berlin was also impressed by their creativity. Throughout today and tomorrow, the startups will be making their pitches to executives and partners of the particitants of the ChallengeUp Accelerator in a closed session. Before tomorrow’s evening, we will know which 12 startups will advance on to the six months of intense mentoring in various European locations. The selected startups will talk to Deutsche Telekom, Cisco, and Intel about future steps over the weekend. The other 12 will not leave Krakow empty-handed. They will go home with some homework to make their value proposition even stronger as well as some wonderful connections in the industry. Everything will culminate in a sort of demo day/ pitch-off at a major tech conference in London this December.  The conference has yet to be decided.
