And the winner is...

Carlo Ulbrich was the last of the six selected start-ups to present the business idea of ​​his company NECT. In the end he could convince the 10-member jury across the board.

This is how jury chairman Oliver Gajek of Munich Network explained, why NECT won at the award ceremony: "Your business case is absolutely promising and we believe in you to take the advantage of your current first mover advantage to make the best of it!"

But what is NECT doing? The young team wants to eliminate the lavish, time-consuming postident process of mailing personal identification processes in the digital age. With its "Selfie-Ident" system, the company offers the first legally compliant, digital identity assessment based on artificial intelligence. Thus NECT can also replace "the really not well functioning" video identification procedure, which is user-unfriendly and has high termination rates.

Carlo in his pitch: "We do everything a expert doing the video ident needs to do for the identification process, but without staffing, faster, more secure and cost-effective!" (More about this idea: www.nect.com).

After all presentations, the investors and supporters were able to exchange views with the entrepreneurs separately and in one-to-one discussions in order to get a more accurate picture and to ask questions.

After a three-hour, very successful event, the winner of our 2nd Start-up Boostival was announced around 9 pm.

The winning team will receive as a prize a two-day interaction room workshop with adesso in conjunction with an overnight stay in a 5-star hotel with a total value of around € 7,500.

„Wir erledigen all das, was ein Video-Ident-Mitarbeiter für das Identverfahren tun muss, aber eben ohne Personaleinsatz und somit schneller, sicherer und kostengünstiger.“
