1st Week Bootcamp with November 2019 startups

Our first week of ACE Incubator Bootcamp with the November 2019 startups was a week of fun, insights and interactivity.

A week of fun, insights and interactivity

Our November 2019 ACE Incubator startups had a great 1st week of Bootcamp. From the very first day of Bootcamp, we have had a series of insightful and interactive (read: fun) sessions by our Lead Mentor, Gigi Wang (MG-Team, UC Berkeley Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship).

We have also had fascinating talks by several speakers, namely:

Andrea Candelli (LUMICKS) 1st Pitch during ACE Bootcamp 2013

Our 2013 ACE Alumni, Andre Candelli from LUMICKS managed to find an old recording of his first pitch to ACE during the 2013 ACE incubation program, it was amazing & interesting to watch – you can see the video by clicking on the following links to ACE Incubator’s social channels: Facebook, Twitter & Instagram!

Day 5 of Bootcamp November 2019: Get Ready to Pitch!

On day 5 of Bootcamp, the startup founders had the opportunity to pitch in front of a jury panel and the other startups! We had an amazing lineup of the jury panel:

Pitching can be quite nerve-wracking, but our founders delivered their pitches extremely well & they found the experience to be quite thrilling.  The jury panel agreed that the quality of all 13 pitches were excellent and they had difficulty in picking the top pitches. In the end, the jury awarded best pitch to dr. Wim Noorduin from e-Purity.

The startups really enjoyed the pitching session especially because the jury panel gave honest and constructive feedback. After the pitches, we headed for Friday drinks at the Coffee Virus, Startup Village. The startups, the jury panel, and the ACE Incubator team were able to mingle and unwind – it was a great way to end the first week of Bootcamp!

For the next three months, our startups will be working on the validation of their business concepts/ideas. Stay tuned for more!
