EP 30 – WHU Accelerator Team Introduction (2/2)
As in our last episode, we’re doing things a little bit different in this week’s Most Awesome Founder Podcast. Today, we introducing not one founder, but many.
If you tuned in for episode 29, you know that on May 17 we launched the first cohort of the inaugural WHU Startup Accelerator. This intensive 7-week, mentor-driven, and equity-free program provides the best and brightest startups from the WHU community with rocket fuel for their new ventures, all culminating in a July 2 Demo Day event where the teams pitch their ventures to investors.
So today, we introduce the 4 remaining startup teams selected to participate in this year’s accelerator, the founders behind them, the problems they are tackling, and the paths they have chosen to get to market as effectively and efficiently as possible.
This week, you will meet the founders of…
PreMatch – a data-driven content aggregator for non-professional football
CIMK – a deep-tech data platform for investors interested in the Chinese market
About My Horse – a social commerce platform and online community for equestrian-focused fashion
And Happy Burning – a functional beverage company producing a one-of-a-kind brain boosting focus drink.
Each of these teams are led by incredible founders with unique backgrounds – all driven by a profound desire to improve peoples lives. And as you know, there are few things more inspiring than the stories of mission-driven entrepreneurs!
Hope you enjoy this unique episode of the Most Awesome Founder Podcast!
