Past Thursday the day had finally come.
Our second Batch came to an end and was celebrated appropriately with our Demo Day. Up until 3:15 pm our guests poured into techquartier and the official program could start. CEO Dr. Sebastian Schmidt welcomed the teams as well as partners, investors and techies from the proptech-scene. He invited our founder and CEO Alex Ubach-Utermoehl on stage, who also welcomed the guests and directed a few introducing words to the crowd.
“Our goal is to digitize the Real Estate Industry.”
He summarized the Booster’s mission with these few words. Next to the Booster’s Cooperation with the teams, our company lets them make use of our immense network of leading players in the industry. Next to that, they get to participate in a valuable range of coaching’s and workshop’s concerning their startup’s growth. The result of this journey will be presented today, Alexander Ubach-Utermoehl says.
However, before the teams took their turn, it was time to welcome Alexander Weihe from Vonovia. He gave a quick Impulse speech to talk about the cooperation with our PropTech Teams. He emphasized that he values the immense motivation as well as their acquired skillset in their field.
When Alexander Weihe went back to his seat it was time, to ask the first team to present. CEO Boris Goldshteyn from ALLVR entered the stage and explained how his company created a platform for visualization, communication, and collaboration to ease the process of working together with architects and project-developers. A virtual viewing of the construction site, as well as the possibility to leave comments simplifies not only the planning but accelerates the whole construction. With their tool, ALLVR resolve a huge problem of the construction industry: building projects get delayed regularly which results in increasing amounts of cost. ALLVR offers an immense improvement in efficiency as well as an easy tool for the construction planning.
Boris answered some questions from the crowd and then switched places with the next presenter. Ludwig von Busse from S!mplifa entered the stage. Ludwig presented their business model, which promises to extend the lifetime of an elevator. With the help of a short video, he demonstrated through which functions the elevator-manager eases nerve-racking subject areas like maintenance and reparation. All important documents can be digitally collected and analyzed. Through S!mplifa’s technical know-how, they recognize requirements of the elevators and optimize their processes through this.
Following him, the CEO of VRNow Tim Meger-Guinkamp was up next. Their program visualizes every aspect of physical construction-design as well as already existing design from Real Estate in a time frame of only 10 minutes. It recognizes doors and windows without any problems. Next to this, they also offer the Making of a 360° interactive Video, which can be used for marketing or in presentations. He emphasizes the amount of their incoming orders, which they acquired in the last couple of months, so he is rather confident about the future of the company and its upcoming business year.
CEO Daniel Vallés Valls presented the pitch deck of his and Co-Founder Martin Staudacher’s company wohnungshelden. He explained that their business, through the digitization of tenant change, eases the whole process. Hereby they focus on homogenous processes and customer-oriented working, through which the marketing of new building projects and following-rent is made easier.
After the team’s pitches we welcomed our international guests: Anna Walkowskaja from Poland with her company propergate and Ivan Nokhrin from Russia with exquance, which presented their pitches and enriched us with a valuable insight to the international proptech-scene.
After this Alex thanked us, the Booster-Team, for our work preparing the demo day and the proptech yearbook (Get yours here). He then asked the PropTech Teams individually on stage to hand them their personalized tombstones as memory for the booster-program and appreciation for the great time together. They obviously were happy about this little present. As you can see on the left 😉
It was a great day filled with insightful presentations and good conversations. We are excited to see what our teams will achieve from now on!
Now, we are looking forward to our new Teams!
