Internet of Things: Springboard/TechStars come to Level39
23rd May 2013
Level39 is pleased to announce that we’re working with Springboard to deliver their ‘Internet of Things’ rehearsal event. On Thursday 23rd May, Springboard is coming into ‘FutureMinster’ – one of our Sandbox spaces here at Level39 – and bringing eight innovative and disruptive tech startups with them. The startups will pitch their ideas to a panel of respected tech investors, who will announce a top three after a huddle.
Springboard is now entering an exciting transitional period, as they recently announced a merger with the US mentoring giant TechStars. Springboard was modeled on TechStars from the off, and merging the UK programme with the Boulder-headquartered organisation sees TechStars London kick off full speed in July. It’s a real pleasure to be working with these guys at this interesting time, and we hope to do more with them in the future.
And now for the important part – an introduction to the eight startups :
