This is what previous Pitch Winners had to say during their interviews:
Pasquale Saviano, the winner of the 2019 AI Pitch Battle and CEO of Photocert, had commented, “I like the fact that you call it a Pitch battle, but the battle is not only among start-ups but also, in a sense, with the crowd. Nowadays, everybody is online all the time and if you want to get your message across it has to be more interesting than the next WhatsApp notification. In my case, it probably was a mix of product novelty, current relevance (deep fakes), and fun facts.”Read what other winners had to say here.
The SiGMA Pitch competition allows startups and business to put their presentation skills to the test. Over the years many have taken up the challenge, be it in the realm of emerging tech and AI, or in the iGaming industry. Do you have what it takes to be SiGMA’s new winner?
