Finalists of StartupBus Europe 2016

0 Directors of StartupBus Europe 2016 at Corda Campus (Hasselt, Belgium)

After 72 hours of driving through Europe our buses from Belgium, France, Switzerland and the UK arrived earlier today at Corda INCubator at the beautiful Corda Campus in Hasselt (Belgium) for our demo day.

The weather was a bit grim upon arrival but cleared up afterwards. After a nice breakfast offered by Radix/Startup League we went on to have our demo day. Each startup born on our buses had to pitch for three minutes followed by a three minute Q&A of the judges which took pretty much all day.

The pitching was followed by talks from representatives of Mastercard and Start it @ kbc (Dirk Lievens). After the pitches we had a small reception after which we announced the 10 finalists of StartupBus Europe 2016 who will pitch tomorrow at Pirate Summit. Here are the 10 finalists:

Congratulations to all the finalists. See you tomorrow 12h30 at Pirate Summit in Crow’s Nest for the finals and the announcement of the StartupBus Europe 2016 winner at 18h30, again in Crow’s Nest. After the Pirate Burning there will be a StartupBus party at Pirate Summit itself.

The winner of the StartupBus Europe 2014 competition is Zumo!

Zumo was founded on the Greek bus and provides on-demand interactions using modern technologies like WebRTC. The typical use-case would be online retail shops like Zalando or Travelplanet24 having an “ask” or “help” button. Clicking the button would instantly open a video-chat or a chatroom with someone from the shop without the customer having to switch context and thus improving the customer experience.

Congratulations Zumo!
