It had been quite hard, but we made it! We won the European IMPACT Accelerator contest, a program for mobile startup by the Impact Consortium, which has invested € 6.4 million in two years allocated by the European Union (more info on the program: http://www.impact-accelerator.com).
Entering the program was all but easy: several stages of selection and high competition, with about a thousand mobile startups competitors. In our founder Diego’s words: “It was an intense challenge, but the teamwork of analysis, study and preparation enabled us to reach the final and win the contest. I am satisfied that the skills of the team were Sellf selected.” Diego himself presented Sellf during the IMPACT final, the so-called “Jury Day”, when the finalist startups competed by pitching their projects.
This important victory allows us to bring home a rich prize: a grant of 100.000 euros without equity , 6 months of acceleration with training and mentoring around Europe (we’ll tell you all about it here on the blog!) and especially contacts with the most important investment funds and business angels.
In short, the best is yet to come! 🙂
