Together we celebrate! New Years Drinks 2020!

Last week we had our New Years Drinks. Together with our entire ecosystem of startups, mentors, partners, entrepreneurs in residence and many others we celebrated all our successes of the past year. We took the time to look back at multiple highlight, like Hardt Hyperloop who received a multi-million-euro investment, Physee for winning the KvK Innovation Top 100, and Somnox whose sleep robot is available for sale at Harrods in London. We also stood still by all the startups who outgrew our building, and the new startups who joined.

YES!Delft Awards

In addition, we awarded five of our startups with their hard work in 2019.

The Rookie of the Year Award went to SLAM ortho, because of their commitment and dedication during the Validation Lab, and the remarkable increase of the quality of their company.

The Rising Star Award was handed over to Urbandine, for the commitment to their idea and excellent entrepreneurial skills. We need to keep an eye on this startup in 2020.

The Scaleup of the Year 2019 was without a doubt Nowi. This startup is one of the most successful enterprises within our ecosystem, and they won one of the biggest rounds of investments in the history of YES!Delft.

The award for Best Promo Campaign went to Envision, because this startup went out in the market, talked with their users and understood their needs. They created a targeted campaign that lead this startup to get 15.000 members and 6.000 paying customers.

Out of the 36 hosted Vrijmibo’s there was only one winner, who won the Vrijmibo Party Planner Award because they put together not only an awesome themed party with themed drinks, but also a super creative game that made the whole incubator get to know each other better. The winner was aQysta.

Thank YOU!

And to top this all of, our President of Innovations Wouter tried to break the Guinness Book of World Record for the amount of champagne bottles sabered in one minute.

Thank YOU for being part of our journey, and creating an ecosystem to be proud of! Cheers to everything that will come in the coming years! And would you like to rewatch the recap video we showed during the New Years Drinks? Just press play:
