The startups will present their progress on a demoday called PortXL Shakedown on June 22. Last year’s first Shakedown went off to a fine start.
New this year is the cooperation between PortXL and crowdfunding platform Symbid. Together, they want to make it easier and more efficient for start-ps from PortXL to raise capital by presenting them to a large group of potential investors through this platform. The organization must have been inspired by Startupbootcamp: that accelerator is also having such a partnership with angel investment platform Leapfunder.
