The competition started many months before, when we had to send our proposal to the jury. After some weeks of uncertainty and nervous we received an e-mail from the organization telling us we were one of the ten finalists. After that, a couple of weeks of frenetic work preparing the presentation, investigating each minimum data that the jury could ask us and a few hours feeling a bit stupid front of the mirror ;-).
It was our first experience showing our startup to investors and they were of first level (Inma Martinez, Aquilino Peña, Laura Urquizu, Nacho de Pinedo,Luis Gosalbez, Igor Marroquín and Javier Martin).
Everything started the night before with a networking dinner (finalists and judges), it was fantastic. We met a lot of interesting people and very interesting projects too.
On Thursday morning we started an intensive day showing our presentations to the jury. We had 10 minutes to present and other 10 minutes for questions.
The questions of the judges were very impressive and at the same time they made us feel comfortable in every moment. The level of our competitors was really high. Definitively, we assume it had to be very difficult for them to decide the winners.
This was the final result:
First prize: ByHours
Second prize: Chicfy
Third prize: Mystoremate
Entrepreneurial Spirit prize: Quoders Mobile (on the left you can see our award :-). A "txapela".
