We were in Berlin for Betapitch Global Finals to compete against 9 countries’ winners!

Previously we were the finalist in Betapitch Istanbul, winning the chance to compete in Global Finals

Spoiler Alert:

  After arriving to Berlin we had our breakfast and were ready for the big day. Betahaus organised this event called “Investors Day” where we had the whole day full of different activities ending with the global finals. During the they we attended to several panels. Here we met many great people from all over the world with similar passions.

We all wanted to change the world with our many different ideas for the better.

At the end of the day, crowd filled the room. It was time for the competition for finalists of Tirana, Vienna, Sofia, Hamburg, Jönköping, Mostar, Cairo, Istanbul and Lisbon. When they called Compocket I got on the stage, started giving my pitch. I checked the timer with the corner of my eye, was I slow? Do I have enough time to finish my speech? I started talking faster as timer goes 5,4 Thank you for 3,2, listening to me 1.  Okay I was just on time, now questions. After answering 3 questions the jury finally asked about our visions, goals. I checked the timer, again I had only 5 seconds left. I thought what we want most for real and was able to say “We want to global!” After the shouts of applause I turned back to my chair to watch the rest of the pitches without knowing the surprise waiting us.

We won the grand prize with an extra award, a flight to Shenzen!

Investors have heard the lofty goal of “going global” hundreds of times before, but when Compocket said it on stage at BETAPITCH Global, it came from the heart. The Istanbul-based team created a collection of pocket sized smart devices that allow users to bring lab equipment (oscilloscope, signal generator, logic analyzer, ammeter) home with them for a more efficient, computer based, and mobile compatible measurement experience. At the final event of the night, the judges awarded Compocket the BETAPITCH Global title along with 5.000€, a flight to Shenzhen, and a 3-D Printed Trophy. Betahaus states
  *Right before I broke the 3D printed trophy. 

This is the video where you can almost hear our heart beats:

  At the end of our journey we came back proudly, feeling we represented ourselves and our country very well. More information about the event

How do you imagine the cities of tomorrow? What will our future transportation system look like? How will the blockchain impact the future of smart cities? What role will digitalization, innovation and deep tech startups play?

Are you scared of public speaking and standing alone in front of a huge crowd? Can you imagine yourself pitching to 10 people, 100 or 1000?

That’s what I did on 23rd of November in Uniq Hall for ITU Big Bang Start Up Challange.

There were 11,000 applications for Big Bang 2017 and after several eliminations we got selected for Top 20, which means we had the chance to step on the stage for this year’s biggest national startup event. After the selection we were very happy and very excited. We decided that I was going to give the pitch alone. I rehearsed in front of my mom and my team for days repeatedly. The big day came rapidly, I was calm and ready until they called me to get ready at the backstage. There I was able to see the crowd, 1500 people sitting and waiting to listen to me. Then Big Bang explosion sounds, racing with my heart beats I couldn’t decide which one was which. Now it was my time, I got 5 minutes to tell everything about us. As they called my name all I can remember is very bright lights and deep silence. I managed my excitement, started talking. my speech and the time was finished in the blink of an eye. After all the pitches in the award ceremony we got 50,000 TL Ari Kovani award from Turkcell and a Workstation from HP Technology. It sure was a day to remember for all of us, we are very thankful for the awards and for the every feedback from our listeners.

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, hobbyists, engineers, artists and students. All of these makers come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned. This year Maker Faire was in Istanbul for the third time and we very lucky to be there for the first time in a very beautiful and historic atmosphere Haydarpasa Train Station which dates back to 1872.
