Which startup is the best investment-ready startup according to business angels?
Second annual Demo day is finished! The group of startups this time chosen to pitch was very diverse. Business angels chose startups which are providing solutions to various groups from developers to entrepreneurs and patients; they are developing sensors or complex materials; designing a revolution in education; making communication with customers easy or help scouting specific talent; finally, they also do Blockchain. All these areas were represented at our June Demo day, where brave entrepreneurs, founders of nine investment-ready startup presented their ideas.
The introduction was spiced up by Žiga Vavpotič, chairman of the Managing board of Outfit7. He argued the importance of setting clear goals already at the beginning of setting up a company which obviously takes a lot of hard work.
The moderator of the day was Andreja Satran, who led the startups through all nine pitches, accompanied by questions from the audience. One by one the entrepreneurs did an outstanding job, while being closely observed by the commission. The commission rated all pitches and announced the Demo Day winner – Eclipse Diagnostics (diagnostics sensor), followed by Limitlex (crypto exchange) on second and 3DStrong (nano materials) on third place. Via an online survey the audience too had the opportunity to vote on their favourite and this were Omisli.si (platform for services) and Limitlex, which had the exact same number of points. Right behind them according to the popular vote was Space Invoices (API for invoicing).
The lively discussion with startups with outlining plans for the future continued in the lobby where two other aloumni startups presented their products to the guests attending Demo day. These were Medenka and Be-Hempy.
