We are happy to announce that we received a large number of applications by talented teams with exciting ideas.
What happens now?
Currently we are in the process of selecting the teams that will be invited to the selection days on November 5th and 6th. The teams invited will be asked to pitch their idea in front of a jury at our accelerator in Berlin.
The jury consists of the accelerator team, representatives of Axel Springer SE and the Plug and Play Tech Center, executives of our corporate partners as well as an external VC and a technology expert.
We will inform all successful applicants shortly after the selection days. Before the start of the program in January we will send out and process our term-sheets and all necessary legal contracts. Teams will have enough time to arrange their relocation to Berlin and attend to all the necessary administrative tasks.
Keep on rocking!
Teams that have not made it into the next round will be notified within the coming week. Due to the quantity of promising applications we are unable to talk to all of you. We highly encourage you to keep working hard, make progress, straighten out those business models and reapply for Batch IX.
Thank you for those great applications and maybe see you in 2016 for Batch VIII in Berlin!
