On 18th May 2017, the current teams from the Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany Accelerator decamped to TechQuartier in Frankfurt for the first Frankfurt Rhine-Main Joint Investors Day, a new collaborative networking and pitching event.

The Joint Investors Day is a new joint project initiated our Accelerator and TechQuartier. It aims to give startups the chance to showcase their ideas to external founders and investors, and enrich the investment offering in the Rhine-Main startup scene as a whole.

In total, 15 teams from three accelerators took part. Each team had a 3-minute pitch to introduce their idea to the investor community and the other startups. Afterwards, there was a networking session, and the opportunity for further discussions. Three of our current accelerator teams in Darmstadt took part, and were excited to present the developments they have made on their projects externally for the first time since they entered the Accelerator. Not to mention pitching for that all important funding to take them beyond the Accelerator!

Not only that, the event was a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and ideas with other founders from a wide range of startup sectors. It was also great to see a few new faces from the Rhine-Main startup scene.

Our host, TechQuartier, is a key access point to the startup community in Germany. It aims to bring together the greatest minds from corporate and technology partners, service providers, investors, academic institutions and government officials to offer an ideal environment for entrepreneurs to trade ideas and scale their businesses. As a co-founding organisation and proud member of the Darmstadt startup scene, we were excited to prove that Rhine-Main is more than just Frankfurt am Main. With their great pitches, our startups more than did us proud on that front! We hope we will be seeing even more of you soon at another Joint-Investors Day
