The Slush lightweight pitching competition is where you find the startup community’s most enthusiastic and newest group of innovative businesses. The idea is simple, a group of 100 startups have 2 minutes to pitch to an audience and jury of experts to convince them that their startup company is the next big one. Although a rather simple idea, the task itself is rather demanding. Having only two minutes to present the gist of what makes one startup stand out from the rest proves to be difficult to entrepreneurs who have been working with their product day in, day out. A lack of focus on the part of the presenter to present main ideas clearly and concisely sometimes leaves the audience wondering as to what the startup is actually doing. Some startups clearly come out on top, and four from each group of pitches selected to move onwards to today’s lightweight top-20 pitching competition and only the best moving on to the finals.
The winners of yesterday’s top-100 are below, as well as the times you will find them on the pitching stage.
Congratulations everyone on your great pitches, we’ll see you today on the pitching stage.
