In addition to three minute pitches, the teams demonstrated their technology at an ongoing exhibition, to which many during their speeches invited the audience. As well, the Start-up Alley 2.0 participants also enjoyed stands, although they did not have the opportunity to give their pitches on stage, instead speaking all day with delegates and trying to win their vote in the online Survey Monkey.
The experts used the results of Demo Day to select the best projects for key pitch sessions at the conference on December 9. Viewers were also able to get behind their candidates in the Battle. The following were finalists:
Looky: an individual TV program and show description for more than 200 channels, including over 100 regions.
DreamRoomer: an online service where landlords can find their ideal tenants without an intermediary.
ObmenIgrami: a universal and convenient service for exchanging and selling used video games and accessories.
Gbooking: a system for searching for, comparing, and booking services online using a price optimization and enterprise resource algorithm.
Medesk: a medical cloud platform that helps private clinics, insurance companies, and corporations interact with each other.
The last company to become a finalist via viewer voting was Aviashopper, a mobile guide to the world’s airports.
Watch the Start-up Battle on December 9 in the closing section of TC Moscow. The judges will be Adeo Ressi (Founder Institute), Mike Butcher (TechCrunch Europe), Randeep Wilkhu (T-Venture), Maxim Krasnykh (Intel Capital) and Oleg Kuzhikov (Maxfield Capital Partners). May the best project win!
