Our partner CyberForum e.V. organized the Business Angel Day in Karlsruhe with us today, where angel investors and capital-seeking founders meet and socialize. But what are Business Angels in the first place and what value can they provide startup teams?
This week, the third round of the KIT’s own accelerator program upCAT (Startup Catalyst) started with a total of six teams. The participating teams start into the accelerator with the most diverse ideas: the topics range from energy, through education, to bio technology and outdoor products. We are happy that such a wide variety of products has reached the third program cycle. The start of upCat was on November 17th, 2014 with the kick-off week. Apart from the introduction into the program, the teams, organizers, and mentors got to know each other.
Currently, there is the break between semesters and summer is also not at its best. This leaves enough time to have a closer look at one’s own business idea. Do you currently have a startup in mind and are just fine-tuning your business plan? Would you like to have independent feedback and new ideas from experienced representatives of industry? Then now is the opportunity to do so! Take part in one of the many founder competitions.
Some calls for proposals will expire in the next few weeks and are just waiting for your idea! We will present a few current founder competitions to you here so you can start right away.
