Berlin’s startup scene is abuzz with football fever, as 12 companies and 96 players get ready to compete for the crown of their first tournament Startup Cup.
Online food delivery platform Lieferheld, is hosting Startup Cup, which kicks off tomorrow morning at Berlin’s indoor football arena BoBo Fuego.
Tournament organiser and Lieferheld Marketing Manager Norman Wiese, says, “We at Lieferheld play regularly football every week. Since we knew other startups are doing so as well, the idea of the Startup Cup was born”.
The likes of Soundcloud, Zalando, tape.tv, Groupon, and Sponsorpay will be competing for “fame and glory” as well as the golden prize of a foosball table.
Fans and spectators are welcome to cheer-on their favourite startup. Here’s the list of those taking part:
