German Startups Group in the news

Investing in German Startups, high tech stock exchange in Germany and the startup ecosystem Berlin. In recent weeks we have reported about fundamental development in the market. This week we want to show the feedback German Startups Group gained within last weeks. Whether TVSmiles, Meine Spielzeugkiste or Itembase. All three start-ups managed it to write very good headlines in recent press.

TVSmiles - Smiles conquer the world of television

The positive feedback for the team of TV-Smiles has really been earned. As one of the most popular apps for free, TV Smiles is conquering the TV world currently. Leading industry magazines such as Gründerszene, Deutsche Startups or Venture Village are reporting about the app, which is supported by the German Startups Group. The app sees itself as loyalty program that rewards users for watching TV. Through the use of audio signals, TVSmiles recognizes different ads of Tchibo, Magnum, and co. while watching TV and provides the user with corresponding questions. For the correct answer, the user then receives Smiles that he can redeem in various shops nearby.

Meine Spielzeugkiste with success story on crowd investment platform Companisto

Meine Spielzeugkiste does not only make children happy, but also parents, and now investors. There is a campaign running on the crowd investment platform Companisto (further details can be found here) for more than one week now where individuals can participate in the success story of the toy startup. After just one week, already over 100,000 EUR has been collected by the crowd. Investing in startups made ​​easy!

Itembase collects fresh capital again and remains on course for growth

Itembase collects fresh capital and remains on course for growth in the future. 3.25 million U.S. dollars has been collected by the startup that is funded by the German Startups Group, Rheingau Founders, High-Tech Gründerfonds, HR Alpha and Westtech Ventures. Particularly pleasing is that Skype investor Morten Lund has joined as new chaiman of the board.

Plans for a new high-technology stock exchange in Germany take shape

A German Nadaq should be created. A high-tech stock market that allows start-ups in Germany to collect capital and private investors will be given the opportunity to participate in startups “made ​​in Germany”. So far only a vision, but it becomes more and more realistic from week to week and planning more concrete. This became obvious on a professional discussion (click here for the video) and an interview with the CEO of German Startups Group, Christoph Gerlinger, in the past week.
