"SCALE11" Lets smapOne Take Off

Swarms of white-blue paper airplanes flew through the air at CeBIT last March in Hall 11. smapOne was to blame. At the stand of this Hannover start-up, visitors wrote down ideas for mobile apps and aimed them at a target to win a tablet.

"2,500 paper pilots, 5,000 visitors, a lot of VIPs at the stand, many, many concrete discussions and follow-ups – that was our first smapOne CeBIT"

Sven Zuschlag, CEO and found of smapOne AG
