On 16 and 17 March 2012 Startup Camp Berlin is offering young and seasoned entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet with like-minded people, as well as enrich their entrepreneurial skills in a number of workshops and presentations. Highlight of the SCB12 is the “bitcrowd CampChamp” startup competition. In cooperation with bitcrowd (a full-service web- and mobile-development agency seated in Berlin) and lindenpartners Startup Camp Berlin 2012 offers the winner the development of a prototype software (for free). That said, the ‘bitcrowd CampChamp’ competition will be especially attractive for teams that are missing a technical co-founder.
bitcrowd is offering the CampChamp winner the development of their first software version with a total of 40 person-days of work for conception, project management and development. lindenpartners also jumped onboard and added another 4.000€ worth of legal advice. To top it all off, HU Innovation GmbH, the incubator of Humboldt University decided to offer 6 months of free office space for the winning team. As of now, teams can apply for the SCB12 start-up competition here.
Concerning their support, the bitcrowd-founders Dirk Holzapfel und Christoph Beck stated: „The bitcrowd CampChamp is an opportunity for us to support the Berlin start-up scene and at the same time do what we do best: bringing ideas to the net. With our support we would like to show how effective and goal-oriented agile methodologies are in software development and convince other start-ups to join this way of working.”
