Gauss (@getGauss) Co-Founder Vidar Andersen (@blacktar) on stage pitching at the European Pirate Summit (@PirateSummit).
As we thought we had only four minutes to pitch, we opted to go for a higher lever approach to try communicate our vision and leave more time for questions from the jury. Despite the fact that we didn’t really get around to describing our product, we were voted to third place of 14 startups competing. Thank you for the votes!
The jury consisting of Lars Hinrichs (@LarsHinrichs) Christoph Janz (@chrija) and Thomas Madsen-Mygdal (@mygdal) (Stefan Glaenzer (@StefanGlaenzer) unfortunately had to leave earlier than expected) selected ex-googler and Vocalytics co founder Benoît Curdy’s (@bcurdy) pitch as their well deserving winner. Great guy, interesting product! We even used their first product PaceRecorder to practice our Gauss pitch.
Gauss (@getGauss) was very close to the second place, which our awesome startup friends over at Did This nabbed. We truly think they deserve it. They delivered a solid entertaining pirate pitch and have a cool product with a massive vision to boot.
