About Best of Munich

The Best of Munich 2015 describes itself as “the competition uniting Munich’s startup ecosystem,” aiming to increase nationwide visibility and connect the most promising startups and biggest players in the entrepreneurial scene, such as startups, entrepreneurial network institutions, universities, VCs and business angels.

The panel of judges included Birgit Ströbel, co-founder of Immobilien Scout GmbH, Dr. Alexander von Frankenberg, managing director of High-Tech Gründerfonds, Christoph Jung, general partner of HV Holtzbrinck Ventures, Dr. Berthold von Freyberg, partner at Target Partners, and Felix Reinshagen, CEO of Navvis (the winner of Best of Munich 2014).

The Bavarian capital of Munich is one of the most attractive cities for entrepreneurs in Germany, and it provides excellent conditions for success. As the capital of the strongest economic region in Germany, it has the highest number of startups per capita nationwide, in addition to some of Germany’s best universities and five DAX companies. The SimScale team recently relocated to a beautiful new headquarters in Munich to accommodate our growth.

SimScale previously announced its seed round of venture capital investment in November 2014, and this recognition from Best of Munich 2015 is another step in the right direction!
