Discovering Startups Winner 2018

Updated: Nov 11, 2021

Tethir was selected by a panel of industry experts as one of three winners for the Discovering Startups Competition 2018.

Entrepreneurs from 51 startups competed for the opportunity to present their companies in the final of the competition, setup by Cambridge Wireless.

Ten finalists had made it through from the application round and presented their business plan to over twenty potential financial backers.

Each start-up had an initial five minutes to provide a succinct and engaging overview of their business including details such as problem space, market size, solution, competitors, customers and current team. The audience was then permitted four minutes of to-and-fro with the presenters to drill into the finer details.

Following the pitches, the judges rotated in pairs around the demonstration areas, spending three minutes at each station assessing the quality of both the pitch and the technology on show. This was a dynamic period of networking for many of the attendees during which they were able to personally see examples of the technology that had been described earlier in the day.

The business pitches judged to be best on the day, and the winners of Discovering Start-Ups 2018, are Conigital Group, Granta Innovation and Tethir.
