‘Speed dating with Investors with Cars’ with our partner Mind the Bridge, October 15th at Betapitch, Berlin.

Matchmaking @ Betapitch 2016, Berlin

On 15th October, an interesting event was happening in Berlin. Numerous startups were getting into black cars and driving around with investors. This was, in fact, a very clever startup-investor matchmaking event.

As you probably know by now, Welcome Matchmaking events happen within larger events and aim to act as a ‘speed-dating´ sessions to connect carefully selected startups and investors. However, this particular event, ‘Speed dating with Investors with Cars’ was the genius brainchild of Welcome and partner Mind The Bridge at BETAPITCH global & Investors day.

In this event, shiny black Audi cars picked up startups to pitch their idea to investors while taking a ride around the block. Like a new version of the ‘elevator pitch’, startups had to get their idea across in limited time, and had the opportunity to make connections one-on-one.

In this event, 50+ 1:1 meetings took place, all whilst taking a drive around Kreuzberg.
