Last Sunday, the two Hamburg start-ups TripRebel and minubo won the pitch in their respective fields, i.e. travel and e-commerce, in the so-called German SXSW Startup Engine. The Hamburg medical start-up Tinnitracks, the first German startup to have been invited directly to SXSW Accelerator programme since 2011, was named winner in the Digital Health and Life Science category.
