Conigital, along with 11 other competing start up companies, pitched to a judging panel and investors, including global brands such as BT and Huawei present. Each start-up had an initial five minutes to provide an engaging overview of their business including details such as problem space, market size, solution, competitors, customers and current team.
Following on from the pitches, start ups were then further tested with a demo round, where each judge would rotate around each demonstration area. Each company had 3 minutes to showcase a selection of their products. This was a thrilling 30 minutes of engaging conversation, limitless questioning and the chance for each company to sell themselves to the maximum.
Conigital develop sensors and technology for the growing connected autonomous vehicle market to further improve connectivity, mobility and accessibility. Their impressive journey to date has included winning three Innovate projects: Project CAPRI worth £5.7 million, Project Synergy worth £4.7million and Project INSIGHT worth £2.2 million. Each collaborative project includes a range of partners and clients such as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Manchester Airport, Birmingham Airport; Heathrow Airport and The Mall Shopping Centre in Bristol. Each project is funded by the UK government and feature cutting edge connected and autonomous vehicle solutions.
Don Dhaliwal comments on the teams win:
“This award is due to everyone’s individual effort and it is so great to receive recognition for all of the hard work that the team have put into Conigital to date.”
Monique Seth elaborates:
“There is a reiterative process to go through to be able to present your organisation’s vision, technology, core strengths, traction and uniqueness within a few minutes; it is worth the inward investment to become succinct and congratulations should go to all the finalists for their quality presentations”
