"As a young A-level student, it's sometimes really hard to be taken seriously by such middle-class people - the award helps."
Perhaps a bold statement, shortly after the screen showed us riding longboards through our old REWE store at QiTech workspace .
Last week I received the Newcomer of the Year Award in Berlin, and I sent the video of the award ceremony directly to one of the SMEs in question :)
The award is a strong confirmation of our work at QiTech and helps us to be taken seriously in the rather conservative plastics and mechanical engineering scene.
All the more reason for me to thank Phillip Jost, Mark Hellweg & Marco Siekmann , who have been negotiating with us as equals since the days of the garage and we have been building up exciting cooperations ever since.
I think: Media-effective prizes help best to be taken seriously as a start-up.
Thank you for organising such a cool event, Startup-Verband and Julius de Gruyter for the nomination.
