It has been a great turn out at the Pitching Stage at this year’s Slush Tokyo. 40 contestants pitched in today’s contest. Not surprisingly, even greater ideas and concepts were presented in front of an eager and curious audience and judges. Contestants’ ideas and talks were diverse: from finance to health and wellbeing, so much has been covered during the first day of the pitch contest. With that being said, only the top 20 businesses have been chosen that will be able to proceed to the next step; a step closer to further launch their product in a direction they deem successful.
Here is a list of the 20 Semi-Finalists that made the cut:
Grace Imaging, Inc.
At Hearth, Inc.
Rei Frontier Inc.
Although they had only 3 minutes to pitch their ideas, those 180 seconds about their respective products were enough to persuade and impress the judges. The Semi-Finals will start tomorrow, Saturday, at 11:00am. This time, however; they will have 5 minutes to further grasp the judges’ attention and take their product(s) to a new level.
Curious? See how it all unfolds at the Pitching Stage, and who gets to the finals!
