Munich 2016

The 7VPD came back home to Munich.

On the stage of the DLDsummer, Europe’s hottest networking and innovation conference, we held our 5th 7VPD. Six amazing start-ups were invited to pitch live on stage and win over the hearts of the audience and jury as well as being able to win our great prize. (Three million euros TV-media, 200 thousand euros online and 70 thousand euros offline media budget + the creation of a TV-spot)

Sascha van Holt (CEO of SevenVentures & jury member) said: “It has never been so difficult to pick a winner, since all of the six start-ups are extremely competent.” Luckily the decision was made for him, as the DLDsummer audience had the last say and voted this year’s 7VPD: “Tinkerbots”

We would like to thank all six start-ups, the honorable jury, the entire DLD team, the DLDsummer audience and all other team members that helped us to create this breathtaking event.
