It was the two co-founders Marie Parslov and Cecilie Ammitzbøll, who delivered a great pitch on the stage at Pumpehuset which convinced the audience to cast a vote in their direction.
“We are very happy! The BII team really helped us to mature as both a company and as founders, and we are just proud to have come such a long way with Ampa. Now, we are looking forward to celebrating with all the great people that have been supporting us on our entrepreneurial journey,” says Marie Parslov and Cecilie Ammitzbøll.
Ampa’s anchor person at BII, Business Developer, Maria Henriques De Jesus, has followed the team closely during the Venture Lab program. She explains that Ampa succeeded in making a pitch that made their company’s solution easily understandable to an audience of more than 250 people.
All seven start-ups that pitched at the Venture Lab DemoDay have worked with topics such as customer identification, IP rights, business model and marketing.
