Step by step towards success – on 9th October 2014 the winners of the “German Accelerator” were announced. The “German Accelerator” is a three-month program that supports German ICT and Green-IT start-ups to enter the US market by providing personal mentoring and office space in Silicon Valley, New York and San Francisco. bitstars was chosen as one of the most promising German start-ups and will soon be taking part in workshops and seminars in Silicon Valley.
Excited and proud of the support from the “German Accelerator” there is no rest for the bitstars-team. The next big challenge “IdeaLab” is to be faced on 10th and 11th October 2014 in Vallendar, Germany. “IdeaLab” is Europe’s biggest student-led start-up conference. As if that were not enough, bitstars was selected as one of nine start-ups out of 100 applications from various countries to pitch at the event. Mostafa Akbari, CEO and joint founder of bitstars, presented the unique entrepreneurial vision and got directly to the heart of the business concept. The positive response of the audience allows the bitstars-team to be optimistic about the results, especially because some investors showed increased interest in the series A planned 2015.
