The second episode is online: Webcast / Download
Yesterday I was at the Venture Apéro at the studios of SF Start up. The cool thing was that we saw the premiere of the second episode 9:30pm, i.e. 40 minutes before it went live on TV. Plus I met several cool people like the producers of the show or founders of business angel networks.
Unfortunately for me, the focus in the second episode was either on the projects that came in the Top 13, or on “sexy” projects like WhipFlipp. trigami didn’t get any coverage — but at least you saw me for a few seconds at the presentation ceremony :-). As you might guess, trigami is not part of the Top 13. But we’re still very happy to be among the Top 38. For such a young project its a good result. From my point of view we didn’t made it because of these causes:
#1: The project was too young. We had no prove of concept (remember: the pitches were done early January)
#2: My pitch was lousy. I should have been more courageous and show more emotions
#3: The Q&A was lousy. I had no satisfying answers for the very good questions.
#4: The topic we cover was not “sexy” enough. OR: I didn’t MAKE it sexy enough…
#5: The jury had problems understanding what we do and see the impact of it. OR: My pitch was lousy :-)
Anyway: Good luck to the remaining 13! You deserve it!
My favorites of the second episode:
Giveawine (they already have 750k funding and CEO of Fleurop International is on the board)
Exsila (they now have over 8000 members and 50.000 media items)

Update (its picture time):
(yes, I’m back!)
(more than 100 people came)
(cockpit view: thats what it looked like when we were pitching in front of the jury)
(yeah, we saw the second episode 40 minutes before it was aired on tv :-)
