Demo Day 2020: This was the pitch

27.05.2020, Niki

Yesterday was the day: we got to present sproof at the Startup Salzburg Demo Day 2020 in front of a top-class expert jury and a broad audience including investors, founders and other entrepreneurs.

When we joined the Startup Salzburg Factory last year, we knew this was the beginning of something great. After nine months of fine-tuning our ideas, working on our business plan, talking to mentors and networking with relevant stakeholders, we were ready for the highlight of this journey.

Positive feedback from the jury

For the first time, the stage of the Demo Day was online and the event virtual. But thanks to the great organization by Startup Salzburg and derBrutkasten, everything turned out just fine. Almost 200 participants joined in when Fabian Knirsch, CTO of sproof GmbH presented our three-minute-pitch to the audience.

In the prominent jury sat ICT top-manager Eva Wimmers, Clever Clover president Heinrich Prokop, business angel Olav Carlsen, founder Marius Donhauser and investor Franz Fuchsberger. We were more than happy to hear their positive feedback!

Our Startup Salzburg Factory journey

Over the last months, the Startup Salzburg team accompanied us in bringing our business idea to the market. In addition to individual coaching, we were professionally accompanied by our mentor Mag. Gabi Tischler from the Salzburg Chamber of Commerce and got the opportunity to network at exclusive events. We got a lot of feedback and took lots of inspiration from the factory and we are looking forward to the time after the factory.
