On Friday, September 5th, our team attended and received a prize at the 2014 IKT startup competition awards ceremony at IFA. We won the IKT Innovativ Gründerwettbewerb, which translates to “Innovative Founders Competition” in English.
This is a particularly important win for us because IKT is the largest German startup competition with over 290 applicants this year. The prizes were handed out by Brigitte Zypries, the German Secretary of State for the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BWMi). The news was recently picked up by Heise.de, a large German technology news site and we’ve already noticed a large spike in referral traffic as a result.
