In full holiday spirit, we hosted our 4th and last U.S. German Startup Night of the year. We were proud to present 11 startups, from a variety of industries such as Aerospace, FinTech, and Food & Beverage. The event represents the culmination of our 3-month intensive program and helps connect companies with investors, venture capital representatives, potential customers, and partners.

More than 100 participants watched the startups of the U.S. Class 2020-4 give their 3-minute pitch. On the point and to the minute, everyone did an excellent job and we were excited to see the high quality of pitches. What a success for the companies after weeks of pitch training and refining their messages.

To allow for interactive networking, we switched from Zoom to Sophya after the startups had finished their pitches. At the virtual holiday-themed venue, attendees had the chance to mix and mingle with their virtual “mini-me”. The room was decorated with fun holiday accessories and guests could dress up their avatars with fun hats and outfits; from pink hair and reindeer antlers to Santa hats – the funkier the better.
