The 24HBG is a nation wide competition where students can pitch their startup idea in front of investors and established industry experts. The event consists of a 24-hour marathon where students need to build a solid businessplan and an investors presentation for their new startup.
Cofoundme is a platform where students can find their cofounder for their startups.
A common problem is that a lot of business students have a startup idea but don’t know how to build a website or an app. On the other hand students of technical universities have the technical skills but aren’t that business savvy. Cofoundme serves as a platform where the skills of students are matched with other students’ ideas. Cofoundme is already active in Switzerland and is planning to expand to the rest of Europe with The Netherlands up next.
