Immer is Dutch finalist in German book business accelerator – ContentShift 2022

Immer, Dutch startup and developer of digital reading apps, is one of the five finalists in the German ContentShift Accelerator 2022, a competition for startups and their innovations, organised by the German book publishing industry. Out of 39 initial submissions, Immer and 9 other candidates were selected for the first round. After reviewing their live pitches in Frankfurt last week, the jury announced that 5 startups will continue to the finals. This summer, all finalists gain access to a top-class network of investors. They will also participate in a 3 day workshop and have several opportunities to improve their (international) business plans.
