Did you know that the High-Tech SeedLab has been supporting aspiring entrepreneurs since September 2017? In those years, we have backed 32 teams on their way to successfully start their business in Berlin. It is with a very heavy heart that we’re officially announcing today that the High-Tech SeedLab accelerator program will come to an end on 31st December 2021. Time to take a look back at the previous years and the great startups we had the pleasure of working with.
How it all started
A brief history and success stories of the High-Tech SeedLab
We – the High-Tech SeedLab – are proud to have been part of the BSS since September 2017. What first started under the name of High-Tech Accelerator Program slowly but steadily grew into one of Berlin’s truly tailor-made support programs for early-stage startup teams active within the fields of high-tech, sustainability and women in tech.
Since its inception in 2017, the High-Tech SeedLab proudly supported 32 teams on their way to successfully start a business and enter the German market. LiveEO, one of our alumni teams, announced the closing of a €5.25 million Series A funding round in April 2021. Other alumni teams include MiProbes, a startup whose female co-founder recently got named Newcomer of the Year at the German Startup Awards 2021 as well as Kleiderly, whose founder Alina Bassi was listed in the 2020’s Forbes 30 under 30 Europe list.
Accompanying our alumni teams on their way manoeuvring through the crazy world of entrepreneurship and being part of all these amazing success stories makes us immensely proud.
High-Tech SeedLab Demo Day 2021
After 10 months of hard work developing their business ideas, the High-Tech SeedLab cohort of 2021 will pitch their solutions on the (virtual) stage of our Demo Day. The business ideas of our teams address major challenges such as building regenerative agriculture infrastructure, increasing transparency in sustainability reporting, circular solutions for plastic reduction, and more.
The Demo Day is the finale of our program and gives all interested parties the chance to get to know our talented founders and their startups. During the event, we will take a look back together on the past years. Our expert jury will name the winner of the jury award. The audience will additionally get the chance to support their favorite startup by voting for the Audience Award.
