Betapitch Global Finals in Berlin
We were in Berlin for Betapitch Global Finals to compete against 9 countries’ winners!Previously we were the finalist in Betapitch Istanbul, winning the chance to compete in Global Finals
We all wanted to change the world with our many different ideas for the better.At the end of the day, crowd filled the room. It was time for the competition for finalists of Tirana, Vienna, Sofia, Hamburg, Jönköping, Mostar, Cairo, Istanbul and Lisbon. When they called Compocket I got on the stage, started giving my pitch. I checked the timer with the corner of my eye, was I slow? Do I have enough time to finish my speech? I started talking faster as timer goes 5,4 Thank you for 3,2, listening to me 1. Okay I was just on time, now questions. After answering 3 questions the jury finally asked about our visions, goals. I checked the timer, again I had only 5 seconds left. I thought what we want most for real and was able to say “We want to global!” After the shouts of applause I turned back to my chair to watch the rest of the pitches without knowing the surprise waiting us.
We won the grand prize with an extra award, a flight to Shenzen!
Investors have heard the lofty goal of “going global” hundreds of times before, but when Compocket said it on stage at BETAPITCH Global, it came from the heart. The Istanbul-based team created a collection of pocket sized smart devices that allow users to bring lab equipment (oscilloscope, signal generator, logic analyzer, ammeter) home with them for a more efficient, computer based, and mobile compatible measurement experience. At the final event of the night, the judges awarded Compocket the BETAPITCH Global title along with 5.000€, a flight to Shenzhen, and a 3-D Printed Trophy.
