Minute to Pitch It (#Min2Pitch) was a huge success! Last night, the 48 Finalists made a 60 second pitch to a crowd of fellow entrepreneurs and startup enthusiasts. Go over time? To bad! The gong rang at one minute and the next Finalist was up. Consider it like speed dating for startups; one after another, the crowd was wowed with innovative ideas and mind blowing product solutions.
The pressures on as MassChallenge moves into two more rounds of judging followed by the October 23 Awards Ceremony! And while theres still 8 weeks left in the Accelerator, this event was great practice for the Finalists.
Not only did the pitches convey the Finalists innovative products/services, but also the pitches themselves were highly creative. LookFlix was looking snazzy in their pink suits, Lifeables had magical social balloons, and GRIT demoed their off-road wheelchair! It was definitely an interesting night. Heres what some of the Finalists and guests had to say:
