I’m really pleased to announce that we won the LeWeb 2014 Startup Competition!
After a hard-fought semi-final against some really great startups, we made it to the final three, which meant pitching on the main stage on the final day of the conference.
The panel was made up of some giants of the tech world, including LeWeb organiser Loïc Le Meur, Lastminute.com co-founder Brent Hoberman and French Minister of State for Digital Affairs Axelle Lemaire. They posed some pretty demanding but very interesting questions, our favourite being ‘What Is The Future Of Art?’ We’ll have 3000 words for them by Monday morning.
The other two finalists were both great ideas and are well worth a mention. EasySize makes it easy for shops to decrease their return rate by using an algorithm to make sure customers are ordering the size that’s right for them; and NaturalCycles is a smart fertility monitor that lets you naturally plan or prevent pregnancy using just your daily temperature. We’re sure they’re both going to go on to great things.
In the end we won, which is a massive honour. You can check out the entire pitch below – there may be a rap involved.
