B-8 International AG chosen for Newchip’s Seed-Stage Global Accelerator Program
(Switzerland) B-8, headquartered in Zug in Switzerland, is developing a new global AI-powered application that combines news with social media. It will be launched in 2022. B-8 has been successfully approved to join Newchip’s Seed-Stage Global Accelerator Program.
- We think globally. The business model is disruptive. We have built a new category in the market to provide unique services to users now and in the Web 3.0 world. As we have been chosen by one of the global top accelerators, we will have the chance to learn and cooperate with the best global mentors and investors in one of the most vibrant tech places in the world – New Silicon Valley in Austin, Texas. This place has recently become the headquarters for many global tech companies. We are proud of this success. In B-8 we have a very strong team and are in a good place at the right time – says Ilona Weiss, CEO of B-8 Group.
B-8 has participated in the Newchip admission process in the last few weeks. Joining the Newchip program is a great success for B-8 as the Newchip acceptance rate is below 10%. – This means that B-8 is in the top startups with a high global scalability model – adds Weiss.
- Newchip evaluates a vast and diverse number of seed-stage companies from around the globe, selecting only a small percentage to be part of our Seed Accelerator program - says Armando Vera Carvajal, Vice President of Product at Newchip. - This careful vetting process of both the business model and founder makes us an ideal partner for venture capital investors and other key stakeholders in early-stage startup financings who are looking for promising startups that are beginning to generate traction and revenue. New companies like B-8 International AG can scale quickly with proper funding and guidance. We are excited for B-8 International AG and believe they will be well positioned to take advantage of our fast-expanding global ecosystem at Newchip.
Joining the Newchip Accelerator opens doors to a global community of 2500+ qualified angel investors and venture capitalists, among them Goldman Sachs, Softbank Intel Capital, TechStars and many more.
