San Francisco, roll out the red carpet; our champions are coming.
The hugely anticipated 22 startup finalists who started out as part of our 35-team, 2015 HACKcelerator batch have finally been selected. And they’re gearing up to show you how they’ve been disrupting their industries at our 4th Annual Global Demo Day.
After over two months of hustling, executing, and acquiring, there is no doubt in our minds that these super hackers are, in fact, the ultimate entrepreneurs too. The passionate teams, who started out at their local AngelHack hackathons with nothing but a hack concept, have shone through every challenge we’ve thrown their way since the HACKcelerator’s kick off in August.
And the result has been mind blowing. With several weeks left till Global Demo Day, our teams are already closing strategic partnerships with the big guys in the industry, closing investments, and growing their daily active users. Our Mexico City team, BoxTrip, was even named by Venture Institute as one Mexico’s top 10 startups in 2015! The team has since been invited to pitch at the MX.FR Innovation Day in Paris. Our teams have been featured everywhere from Digital News Asia, to 7Days UAE, to Excelsior TV.
