It’s a wrap for the 2018 Go Grow Accelerator Demo Day!
On the 27th of September, the halls of Copenhagen Business School were filled with entrepreneurial minds sharing their knowledge and networking. But for the 15 Go Grow and Digital Growth Path startups, the much anticipated event was not only source of nervousness and excitement, but also a great deal of accomplishment. After 4 months of dedication, full immersion and hard work, it was time for the startups to pitch in front of an audience of business angels, venture capitals, entrepreneurs, industry experts, professionals and of course, friends and family.
The 15 startups pitching at the event were:
21Risk – Providing a SaaS solution to minimize risk for medium to large size companies with factories

After a sequence of pitches, the jury decided on the award winning groups and, followed by audience cheers and drumrolls, the winners and grant takers were announced.
For the Milestone award and cash prize of 30 000 DKK, Lars Thinggaard the president and CEO of Milestone Systems granted the award to the startup RadiSurf. The prize also includes 9 hours of mentoring with Milestone executives.
And last, but definitely not least, it was time for the audience votes to be announced… and the audience favorite was 21Risk!
