The investors were impressed by the quality of ideas which were presented to them. Read more about UberPITCH on Deutsche Startups.

UberPITCH FINALS IN BERLIN

Almost 4.000 ideas were submitted from people in 37 cities in 21 countries in the first week. And by connecting entrepreneurs from across Europe with local investors through our app, we’ve helped take the elevator pitch to the next level.

The top four joined us in Berlin to spend more time with venture capital firms and attend a series of major entrepreneur conferences and incubator mashups. They also got to jam on their business strategy with Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick.
