March was such a crazy month. So crazy, that we're posting this half way through April – we know, we know, oops. But needless to say, the amount that went on for our startups, both our recent grads (wahoo class of 2017!) and alumni was pretty impressive. So, without further ado...
1. Huge bunch of our Startups spotted in KPMG MadTech Shift 100
MadTech is not only making our daily life more comfortable but also taking the lead in the current digital world. This is why KPMG has created ‘The Shift 100’ highlighting those entrepreneurs responsible for this new era we’re living in, with consumers being able to get far more quick, efficient and flexible services than ever before.
And whilst all of this industry development is incredibly exciting, party poppers and streamers went off in the office this March as a huge list of our alumni were selected as part of the MadTech Shift.
Big congrats to all of you! Read more here.
2. We made it! Collider's Big Day was quite a success
The end of the month saw our annual Demo Day, which took place at the incredible Unruly offices.
Needless to say, it was PACKED, and with its unique commercial focus, we saw many brands from the likes of Microsoft, Yahoo and Ogilvy, impressive investors and awesome startups.
With our new-stye Demo Day, not only our fifth cohort startups pitched but some of our impressive alumni, ending with Good-Loop being crowned the winner of the popular vote.
3. Pixoneye spotted on the ‘50 most disruptive UK companies in 2017’ list
As we know, the UK is standing out because of its innovative and entrepreneurial mindset in all industries, and tech is taking the lead, with the Pixoneye team clearly playing an important role.
‘Future 50’ ranking by Real Business has awarded a deserved position to our class of ’15 alumni this year. Great work guys!
4. Cooala landed in the Top 100 Europe award 2017
March saw yet another win for one of our alumni, Cooala, who found themselves listed in the Red Herring Top 100 Europe Award.
A huge congratulations to our class of ’14 team for this brilliant achievement. Read more here.
