Last week the ePlus project joined our partners in Sophia Antipolis, France for our second NITRO: The extreme acceleration event. From over 100 applications, the 25 most promising startups were invited to join us for two days of workshops, networking, and pitching in the middle of the tech hotspot of France. The startups were selected based on ingenuity, business viability and growth stage. This resulted in a remarkable group of unique startups from all over Europe, providing an exciting mix of ideas and ambition. You can find a complete list of our NITRO 2 startups here.
“The quality of the startups was remarkable. The entrepreneurs were very well prepared and alluring to the investors at the Nitro Acceleration event. The set of experts and investors was inspiring, and the programme was very hands-on, as well. I expect to be reading about this batch of startups in the near future.” Hugo Faria – Host Negotiating Technology Agreements Workshop – INOVA+
On the first day, the startups participated in interactive workshop sessions with our experts to learn more about topics such as Sales, UX, and Public funds. On the second day, the startups were presented with the opportunity to use what they learned in a short pitch carousel for a number of European investors.
How did the startups experience the event?
“It was like a shot of high caffeine espresso. Short but powerful. The location is A+. The investors were high level, able to analyse and synthesise quickly and give to-the-point feedback.” – Bert from Geckomatics (http://geckomatics.be/)
