okay, nice big break! Thank you very much for coming here today. My name is

Michael and I will be your guide for today

me and my colleagues, we work in South Moravian Innovation Centre and we help people

to create companies that change the world

creating company is always kind of big step to the unknown for most of the

teams so it's not always successful

when we started Starcube three years ago just two teams finshed the program

one year later we get to eight

and this year you will see fourteen projects

so it's seven times more than in two thousand ten, when we started with the


there are almost two hundred people in audience today, so it's quite tough for, not

only for me,sure

but also for our startup teams which are sitting here, because for most of them

this is the very first time, for most of them, they are presenting in public.

So I want you

to be kind to them because they might be scared to death, they might forget

what they wanted to tell you, they might fall down from this stage because this

is kind of unusual place. So please, be supportive. I want you to give big

applause to everyone who is climbing up this stairs. So let's try: I will go

down and pretend that I am some special successful startup. So I want you to

get ready

nice, but not good enough. Let's try one more time

okay, so keep that in your... keep that in your mi and so be as

much supportive for each team who is climbing the stairs or for everyone who is

going up


today we are here to also inspire you. Do you want to inspire those people

who didn't started any company yet? I think there are some of those people in

the audience and we want you to try as much as you can in the

future to make your ideas come true

for those of you whose knowledge about Starcube might be a little blunt, let me

tell you briefly what it is

Starcube is a Startup Akcelerator program, first of its kind in Czech Republic. We started

three years ago as a student oriented pre-incubation program for much older incubation program of

South Moravian Innovation Centre

companies in incubation program has a year

turnover over one billion czech crowns and we want to make it higher with teams

who are here in Starcube

during the last three years we have come a long way. We established a lot

of interesting partnerships with companies and organisations and we also gained a lot of experience

thanks to our mentors and lectures who helped us a lot

our alumni such as GINA CUPtech Celebrio or Universator achieved a lot of interesting international


we change a name and we also change the scheme of the program but what

is the same all the time is a focus

focus on people

extraordinary people with the passion for their ideas

and today you will see what can passionate people do in a three months

you cannot ask father who is his favourite kid, so I cannot be the judge

for today. So I invited people who will be judges for today and who will

decide this height who is the better one and who is not

so let me introduce you our court of experts

from my left to right: I cannot see... yeah, JD from Meebee; than Jiri Krechl

from Czechinvest

Sandra Kumorowski from Chicago

Stanislav Kopecek from PwC, Price Waterhouse Coopers; Jan Tauber from Genesis Capital

we wouldn't be here without some financial support, of course. Fundraising is also quite tough

thing, so we tried a lot of stuff

we also asked for public money

and sometimes we were successful

so those are our partners who gave us support, not only money, but their time,

their effort to... for our teams to get better. So I want you to give

nice applause also for these people because without their support we wouldnt't be here today

also important was European Union, actually, who really supported us. So, this particular event is

paid by European Union. So please, once more

so, I do the job

today we will see fourteen projects

fourteen two minute presentations from our teams

there will be no questions and answer panel during this stage, so listen carefully, because

in the other part of the day or during the break you will be voting

for your most favourite team

these will be two minutes presentations, two minutes sharp. So, if someone runs out of

time the team will be stopped

during the break, which will take fourty five minutes, our board of experts will decide

who is in the top five

and also, you can vote for your favourite team. There will be also small award

for one, someone, who gives his vote, or her vote, for

so, after the break, there will be top five. We will have five presentations by

five minutes and each presentation after five minutes will have ten minutes for questions and

answers panel with our jury

then there will be another break, shorter one, to decide who is number one, two

and three

so, there will be awarding ceremony. But before that, we'll show you some success stories

about former successful startups from Starcube

so, awarding ceremony and then networking event. I hope you will stay because there are

a lot of interesting people right here: marketers, developers, metrocapitalists, business angels. So, network as

much as you can, because this is the place where our startups gathered today

before we proceed to the presentations from our teams, let me remind you a few

rules about this... how we can behave, or we have to behave in this special

place. So, no cell phones, please. I can see a lot of you have running

your laptops or cell phones. If there is this light open, or if this light

shines, it's quite okay if you have open laptop. But when the light goes dark,

you are illuminating the place and people cannot see the canvas so much

so, also no food or drinks inside, actually in this place, but outside is okay

and no smoking for smokers no smoking even on the terrace. So, in the evening,

please, if you need to go for smoking, there is some kinder playground down in

the park

you can try there

and also, there are two doors. Use it as the aerochambers. I don't know if

you watch science fiction movies, so small instruction. If there is aerochamber, you have to

open one door, step inside, close the door and then open the second door and

go outside

because, if you open the door totally, first and second, there will be also light

coming inside

so, use it as the aerochamber

and don't forget

it was just as the reminder; don't forget to give applause for every team who

is going upstairs

so, ladies and gentleman

new stars will shine on the startup sky today. Let me introduce you
