The winning start-up will receive a prize package worth more than € 20.000, including a cash prize plus professional coaching.

"Team Glean" represents Jönköping University

The team from Jönköping University is called “Glean” and is a truly international mix with students from the Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Sweden, France and Bulgaria. Together the team members have three years experience in founding and establishing start-ups.

The idea that the team will pitch in Berlin is a mobile application that allows its users to give and receive personal feedback anonymously within their social network.

Also representatives in Start-up Day

Glean will also participate in Start-up Day in Stockholm on 20 April, one of the major events for start-ups in Scandinavia.

- We have been working on Glean now for quite a while and it is amazingly motivating, says Steffen Maier team member and JIBS student. We are extremely happy to be selceted by the jury of NEXT Berlin to present our idea to entrepreneurs and investors from all over Europe. As we are all working hard our idea, we will already come up with an alpha version for the events in Stockholm and Berlin. Moreover, we aim to involve JIBS soon to test our application in context of educational feedback.
