ubi i/o keeps the title! Yesterday, the World Cup Tech Challenge took place at the Microsoft Campus in Silicon Valley. Following the 2014 victory of Contract Live in the Enterprise Software category, Evercontact took home that title yesterday!
SVForum’s World Cup Tech Challenge is one of the most competitive pitching event in Silicon Valley. Over 200 applications from 53 nations were received from which 24 startups were hand-picked to represent 18 countries.
That’s why we were also thrilled to see Adways and HEXO+ pitch on stage! Even if they did not win in their respective categories, they managed to spark a lot of interest from the panels and the crowd. This was by far their most impressive pitch!
Alongside the competition, ubi i/o entrepreneurs enjoyed insightful talks from great keynote speakers such as: Mary Grove, Director of Google for Entrepreneurs and Pascal Finette, Managing Director @ Singularity University Labs … just to name a few.
This event was also an amazing opportunity to network with top notch VCs, executives, and technology trailblazers. A day that will forever stay engraved in everyone’s mind! France is making noise in Silicon Valley and we are proud of the great team spirit ubi i/o participants display day in and day out! #WTCFrance!
