31 of the 55 startups to move to the next round of selection

Decision made

The candidates for the SMART TECH TROPHY 2017 are on tenterhooks. And our heads are in a whirl – both at the kraftwerk – city accelerator bremen and at our partners’ end. Because we’ve received lots of exciting business ideas for our SMART TECH TROPHY 2017. Over the last two weeks, we have examined all applications very carefully, and have chosen the ones we believe are particularly promising.

They were admittedly very difficult decisions. But they had to be made, and made them we did. The first round of this year’s competition has seen 31 of the 55 startup candidates make the shortlist. All applicants will receive written notification from us in the coming days. Those who have made it to the next round are one step closer to being invited to our Selection Days in November.
