MoneyTalks Opens the Year in Otaniemi
This year’s first MoneyTalks entrepreneur-to-financier pitching and matchmaking event was held in Espoo on January 12th 2012. The event started the year well as it attracted a full crowd of up-and-coming technology start-ups and active investors to Otaniemi. The event was a success as the plentiful crowd witnessed three great 7-minute presentations from Adfore Technologies Ltd, Midaxo Ltd and Energest Group Oü, as well as multiple one-minute power pitches. Distinct and interesting software and mobile solutions were presented to the audience, ranging from business intelligence tools to software for sharing and renting electric cars. After the pitches the networking began and by the looks of it the conversation was active as new and old acquaintances shared their thoughts.
Here are links to the seven minute presentations from Adfore Technologies Ltd and Energest Group Oü accompanied by some information on both. At the moment we are unable to share the presentation of Midaxo Ltd, but we hope to have it up also as soon as possible.
Adfore Technologies has developed a hyper local marketing and information solution that currently operates under the brand name Tässä.fi in Finland. The solution enables users to find information on close by amenities such as shops, restaurants, and public services anywhere in Finland.
Energest is an Estonian cleantech start-up specializing in energy technology and software development. Their product Utilimon is a business intelligence tool for measuring the energy consumption of large buildings. The product offers data every five minutes of the buildings energy consumption from all possible sources. This allows property owners and building managers to reduce their utility costs by pinpointing the areas that need improved energy efficiency.
