Picalike wins German Accelerator Programme and will expand to the USA within the next 6 months. We feel honored and proud to be part of this growth acceleration programme. The German Accelerator will support us with office space and a network of outstanding mentors, workshops, marketing & pr support as well as administrative services to scale our business globally. The German Accelerator aims to identify successful technology driven startups from sectors like SaaS, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, E-Commerce, Advertising Technology and more. The initiative is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and supported by strategic Partners like Deutsche Telekom, Siemens, Dentons etc.
Steps to win German Accelerator
First of all, Picalike applied to take part in the German Accelerator Programme in August with a written application. Skype interviews with mentors from the Silicon Valley followed accordingly in September. Passing this second stage, German Accelerator invited us to prepare pitches for different audiences. Finally Daniel, our CEO, pitched 3 times live in different formats. The evening ended with a fancy event in Frankfurts new Tech Quartier with more than 300 guests and participants.
Now we are keen to prepare for our next milestone and win some clients in the US.
