More than 70 investors show interest in ABC Accelerator startups

The big entrepreneurship event, ABC Demo Day 2015, took place on Wednesday, the 24th of June in the Crystal Palace in Ljubljana. There, ABC Accelerator has connected startups that finished the intensive interactive three-month program “Smart Cities” with international investors – VC funds and business angels.

The congress hall of the Crystal palace was teeming with investors from home and abroad. In the over 200-strong crowd, there were partners of ABC Accelerator, ABC mentors, and investors. Even before the official start, the young entrepreneurs and investors had been having preliminary talks and started indicating which of the startups attracted which capital.

The goal of the Demo Day, the event that the ABC team has organised at the conclusion of the first - “Smart Cities” program, was to present business models that have been developed and tested during the program by the startups with the help of mentors, coaches, business partners, and the dedicated ABC team to a select audience – especially the potential investors. During this, they were able to test what valuation is given to them by the investors from the various countries – Italy, Russia, USA, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, United Kingdom,… which have identified an untapped potential for innovation in Slovenia and the region. The need for capital investment shown by the ABC startups in this first – “seed” – round is around three million Euro, and the first investor responses show that this amount will be exceeded.

The initial inspirational video presentation of ABC Accelerator was followed by the motivational talk by dejan Roljić, the founder and CEO of ABC Accelerator, where he outlined the next development steps. Among them falls the formation of an ABC Accelerator in Salzburg, Austria in 2016 and the entry to the Chinese market in 2017 in cooperation with the investors Premier Group, with whom ABC Accelerator has signed a letter of intent for the transfer of knowledge to Shanghai. In the end, he forecast a visionary break in the field of accelerators, saying: “The accelerator as we know it today will not continue to exist in the future.
