For the second year in a row, we took part in running the eBay Startup Cup competition in Berlin. The concept was designed by GriffinWorx and has been implemented over 200 times in 70+ cities around the world. The competition spanned seven months from June to November of 2018.
67 companies and 39 mentors took part in the “Extreme Build-a-Business” weekend in June, kick-starting the competition. The motto was “Generate revenue now”, and in keeping up with it, 5 teams managed to already earn their first euros during the launch weekend. The most promising 27 teams moved forward in the competition and received multiple rounds of mentoring and pitch training to grow both their ideas and their own caliber and development as founders.
