Blinkmatchapp accepted into the Distilled Intelligence 1.0 Contest
On October 11th, blinkmatchapp.com was accepted among other 55 other start-ups to present to an audience of over 100 including VC’s and investors.
We had the opportunity to do a 60 second pitch and was selected as one of the top 22 companies to go to the next round. All the companies there were innovative and had dynamic teams.
Distilled Intelligence 1.0 – First Rounds (we are at 0:08:20 into it)
Blinkmatchapp.com went first on both rounds (alphabetical) and was nerve wracking to say the least. I gave it my best shot but the journey for this competition ended at blinkmatchapp.com being on the top 22.
I would honestly say we should have made the top 11 but I blew it. On the day of presentation, the slide deck I practiced to for over a week and brought with me could not be accepted. I had to present to a set of old data points and slides I thought was just a place-holder. That said, the Top 5 were great companies and they all deserved to be there. I seriously doubted we would have made that round.
The incredible thing was the learning experience presenting to a group of panel experts and VC’s, meeting other companies and making some great connections. We have since been in doalog with a couple of the companies there with possibilities of some collaborations.
