Last week, our team had an exciting time participating in the G Startup Worldwide - Silicon Valley pitch competition. 10 teams were on stage to pitch to 10 judges. To be among the top 10 finalists, we had to compete against more than 1000 applicants. At the end of the day, Ohmnilabs' Kambria (more to come) system took home the first place!
The G-Startup Worldwide is a global competition held once a year ever since 2010 to find the most innovative startups, invest $1,000,000 in them, and help them to change the world. The partners of G-Startup Worldwide include FbStart from Facebook, Sequoia, Launchpad from Google, and Cheetah Mobile.
The first prize comes with a $50,000 investment, $5,000 Ad credits by Facebook, 1 year G-Network membership, and a spot to participate in the G-Startup Worldwide Global Finals at the Cross-Border Venture Summit in Silicon Valley on November 1st, 2017 for an additional $250,000 award.
The second place winner is "English with Edwin," an AI-enabled English tutor service. And the third place is Flume, an AI-powered leak detection and water management.
The 10 judges this year are selected from the world's most renowed venture capitalists and tech leaders such as Fu Sheng - CEO of Cheetah Mobile, Dave McCIure - Managing Director of 500 Startups, and James Shen - Managing Director of Qualcomm Ventures.
After this intense and fast paced competition, we are now preparing for the upcoming Global Finals pitch on November 1st. We thank you for your continuing support and cannot wait to share our innovations in building the robotics economy of the future with you all soon!
