German Startup Engine: E-Commerce

Sunday, March 15
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon A
500 E 4th St


Germany is an international melting pot for startups, the creative scene, investors and innovation. Top notch engineering and intellectual works reach new levels. We have learned from the US & Asia, but kept our sense for ambition, sustainability, cultural values, and quality. This pitch will cover Germany's top 5 e-commerce startups:

Heyshops / heyshops.com / Munich
LaterPay / laterpay.net / Munich
Minubo / minubo.com / Hamburg
MyCouchbox / mycouchbox.de / Stuttgart
Railslove / Cologne

This pitch is part of the German Startup Engine at SXSW Startup Village. This session is preceded by a panel discussion about the German startup ecosystem and is followed by a second pitch session that will feature Germany's top 5 travel & mobility startups. The German Startup Engine program will be complimented by additional events at the German Haus (Rainey Street). Visit german-haus.biz or check the SXSW schedule.

Presented by Bavaria, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Berlin, Hamburg & North Rhine-Westphalia.
