    Hi all. Seems a while back since this event! I presented Audiowings - the smart headphones. If anyone is interested, we had some decent PR recently, bring featured on Sky News. The piece helps explain what we're doing (and crucially lasts for more than 30seconds!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlDsBjkAk38&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    Thanks
    Carl

    1 · March 14, 2014

    • Carl T.

      Thanks for the kind words Robert. Either way we've got a patent filed and endorsement deal agreed with an award winning artist. Just that he wouldn't have known that from looking at our website... ;-)

      March 14, 2014

    • Ven S

      Great! Any further help with patent search, infringements, workaround a, do let me know.

    Fear of Selling? We all need to address it at some point. A conversation I had at the meet-up has made me think seriously about doing a Sales Workshop for NON-sales people (thanks, Sebastian). It really isn't that hard you know to get a selling mind-set. Once you have that the confidence comes. I can show you how from my 20 years experience. If 5-10 people message me that they're interested, at c £50 a head, I'll put something together. And whoever can provide a room can come free. traderpd@gmail (hope I'm not off-topic, Rob)

      You're absolutely fine Peter. :)

  • Andrea G.

    Great turn up... but as U2 would say: "..I still haven't found what I'm looking for" - I am looking for a strong back end and mobile developer for my start up - I have money to pay a very competitive salary for 3 months - and should definitely be able to secure additional funding to turn this into a full time CTO role - Possibly interested? Please get in touch ASAP! Cheers Andrea

    One of the pitchers was bold enough to add at the end of his pitch, almost as an afterthought "oh, and I have some money to invest". I couldn't find him afterwards, can anyone point me towards his profile? Thanks.

    February 20, 2014

  • Matt D.

    Last night was great fun, thanks to all attendees and of course the organisers. If anyone is in need of an effective new website and some high quality marketing to go with it, please get in touch for a chat. Thanks

    Good to see Germans were out in force last night.

    Just to re-iterate my pitch, I'm currently looking for a UI/UX designer and/or front end developer to help with the development of my business software. My software is for small architect companies, so if anyone has links to architects that might be interested in my system, my inbox is always open ;)

    Such a well attended event last night and thanks for the hospitality and the refreshments. Seems to me, given that 90% of the pitches were seeking developers (including me), the big growth area to get into is developer developing. Maybe I'll pitch that next time.

    1 · February 20, 2014

  • Leonardo Z.

    great opportunity for all the pitching companies!

  • Guy A.

    Great meeting with all of you, and listening to the pitches. If anyone has an interest in turning the creative industries inside out, is creative, or wants to empower creatives through tech, get in touch, Oh and also don't go out-there and "short" your money on the markets as recommended by the sponsors...its highly risky and not worth your while (just in case anyone was listening). http://www.investopedia.com/university/shortselling/shortselling3.asp

    There is no such thing as a "risk free" investment, if there was, we'd all be millionaires.

    Will definitively be there for the next one. Until then, good luck everyone!

    Even if it's just for a quick conversation, I'd be happy to connect. Drop me a line if you are interested!
