The month of July was all about big challenges and decisions for our startups. Last week, the selection pitch was scheduled to determine which teams would get a 3-month extension of the program. Both the jury and the SIBB team rated the pitch performance and the progress of the startups over the last months as excellent, and it was clear that everyone is passionate and more than willing to stay in the program.
Due to the given circumstances, we were able to honor that and, with a few compromises, assure a total of 7 out of 8 teams the extension.
After the hard work, we had a well deserved break with a selfcare & awareness workshop and a get together with drinks and snacks in the park. It is positive to note that the teams also support each other in their professional development and help wherever possible.
We are therefore very pleased to continue working with the teams and provide them with our support!
