TripRebel’s Perfect Pitch at Startups@Reeperbahn – Guestpost by John Heaven

September was hot in Hamburg, as international startups stirred the Reeperbahn Festival, bringing a huge amount of SXSW flair to our otherwise commercially-oriented Hanseatic city! It all happened at our second Startups@Reeperbahn event, which took place as part of the Reeperbahn Festival: Our finalists, five european startups had the opportunity to pitch to investors, media representatives and other startup stakeholders in a dimly-lit, neighbourhood atmosphere. TripRebel convinced both jury and audience and took home both  SPIEGEL ONLINE PRIZE – a media budget of EUR 100,000 and the audience-price a ticket to M-Forum this week at the baltic sea. John Heaven – Englishman, blogger and independent web developer, summarized the evening at Club Hamburg for you. Please give John also a warm welcome for it’s him, who will take over the wonderful task of writing the English Column ‘Views From Heaven’ which you can enjoy on regular basis at Hamburg Startups. There’ll be more of John then soon but for now, please enjoy his guestpost of TripRebel’s Perfect Pitch Read more
