The Energy was high last night, as White Bull and Foundum kicked off TechChampions 2014, with partners Accelerasia, hub:raum, and BDMI - in what some will argue is the Startup capital of Germany!

There was no shortage of talent on stage, with presenting firms Adspert, Ameroline, Cupenya, Linko, MyParfum, and Vamos. Our panel exploring the Innovation Landscape in Berlin featured (pictured above left to right) Julian Reidlbauer of GP Bullhound, Tobias Schirmer of BDMI, and Heiko Rauch of UFOstart. Another all-star cast of innovators, global corporates, investors, and industry players were there to listen, interact, and connect in an intimate setting.

The takeaway from us: A super vibrant startup ecosystem - one of the top 2 or 3 in Europe with a lot of upcoming entrepreneurial superstars. The challenge: The waiting list is long for the Exits and success stories to come out of Berlin. Stay tuned!

Here are a few comments from some happy guests:

"Thanks for inviting me last night.  Great pitches, panel and conversations.  I was super impressed by the quality of the event and attendees."

"I wanted to thank you again for your invitation yesterday. It is the first time I attended one of these live events. ... I'll watch for other events like this in the future."

"Your event was great fun. It was the perfect size, intimate and unlike some events where I've felt "overwhelmed."

And finally, rumor has it that some of our resident bright stars may be taking to the big screen in an upcoming movie about entrepreneurship! ... More on that later.


All the best,
The WhiteBull-Foundum Team
