What a nice event for Kindo, and this how everything happened: The firsttuesday event series had announced the “The First Tuesday Award” a couple of weeks ago and more than 150 UK startups have entered. Everybody had five minutes to pitch in front of a jury, Dragon’s Den style, with were very interesting and high profile guys in the jury:
James Gray - Founder of Getmein.com, Ien Cheng - Managing Editor and Publisher of FT.com and Keith Willey - Executive Director of London Business School. Nils and Gareth went there to represent Kindo and have done a great job:
Kindo was one of three companies, who made it to the Finals at the Internetworld 2008 fair, that is going on at Earl’s Court at the moment.
During “The Award Final” at the Keynote Theatre yesterday the three selected start-ups were pitching in front of the jury and – this time – to the “internetworld” as well. Though finally the property site Zoopla took home the prize, it was a great opportunity to present Kindo to a internet-savvy crowd, and all that only about 10 Minutes from our Kindo headquarters in Putney Bridge.
So thanks to jury and organisers, congratulations to Zoopla and thanks to all who came around for the final!
