The last but not least online Demo Day of the year, organized by Startups Watch, was held on 22 December! The topic of the Demo Day was B2B, where B2B startups got the chance to meet with investors before 2022!
Serkan Ünsal led the Demo Day by introducing the selected startups. He directly invited the main speaker with the excitement of the last event.
B2B Demo Day’s main speaker was Hümeyra Boztunç, the Innovation Manager of Allianz Insurance. We also know her from our HackZone Scale Up Accelerator Program in partnership with Allianz Turkey. As Allianz, their main focuses are creating customer satisfaction and following along with technology. Their priorities are their employees, customers, and society, which all come together as the priority of humans. Allianz has been a global insurance company for 130 years, and Hümeyra highlighted that its success comes from its main focuses and priorities. Also, they pointed out the landmarks which they wouldn’t have accomplished without their partners, such as startups. She emphasized the importance of partnership with startups, generating technology with great IT infrastructure, and leading the data in this new modern world. Hümeyra mentioned the accelerator program that they have collaborated with Hackquarters, us! It is the first time they had an experience of a 6-month accelerator, during which the Demo Day of the HackZone Program was full with the celebration of the startups’ successes.

The jury of the last Demo Day of Startups Watch was Başar Yenidünya, the venture capital at 212. 212 mainly focuses on investing in B2B companies rather than B2C, although they make exceptions like Martı. Başar mentioned that through their experiences, they changed their focus to B2B companies. 212 does tryouts in Turkey to open up global markets with a strong perception.
