TimeTeller Wins Female StartAperitivo 2023
Ten federal states, ten startups led by women, and ten amazing presentations - the finale of Female StartAperitivo offered a top-notch pitching event. Many of the pitches revolved around the avoidance of plastic and overall waste, as well as health-related topics. This was also the case for the evening's winner, Angela Relógio from Hamburg, who impressed with her startup TimeTeller and a life-saving idea. In this article, we will introduce her and all the other candidates.
Prof. Dr. Angela Relógio from TimeTeller had won the Hamburg semi-finals and once again garnered the most votes. She is developing a saliva test that determines the optimal timing for chemotherapy. This has a tremendous impact on the treatment's tolerability and effectiveness, and can literally be a matter of life and death. It will take several more years and €4 million in investor funds for TimeTeller to reach the market. The €5,000 prize money is just a small beginning, but what is crucial for a project like this is visibility, and Female StartAperitivo certainly provides that.
