Our 8 tech-startups selected among dozens of high-profile applicants to participate in the 2015 edition of ubi i/o will attend their first pitching event on Thursday May 7th. The competition will be fierce as their track record includes: CES awards, 7 figures kickstarter campaigns & impressive funding rounds.
How does it work? For one hour, our companies will network, demo and meet with our guests including prestigious VCs, Angels and Entrepreneurs. While meeting & connecting with our entrepreneurs, guests will be able to vote for their favorite company. Yes, YOU get to select the companies you want to see on stage! The top five companies will be given 4 minutes to pitch their concept, followed by 4 minutes of Q/A and 4 minutes of non-rebuttal feedback.
The other three companies will be given the opportunity to do a one minute elevator pitch, in hopes the panel will grant them a chance to join the top five.
The panel features VCs, serial entrepreneurs & attorneys with impressive track records:
