PADERBORN, Germany, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
On March 26th, 2014 the renowned Venture Lounge event took place in Hamburg. VC firms, angel investors and professional venture service providers met some of the most promising start-ups in Germany.
Splendid weather greeted the participants at the 20th floor of Taylor Wessing, its main host together with CatCap. Sponsors included the Venture Magazin, Shortcut Ventures, Neuhaus Partners, Deutsche Startups, seedmatch, the Business Angel Network Germany (BAND), Gruenderszene, Agence, Visionary, Fraunhofer Venture and many more.
Every start-up had 10 minutes to present itself and to answer questions from the critical audience. CEO Müting: "I was nervous at registration when I noticed what experienced audience to expect.

Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before.
