Yesterday was the last day of the AaltoES Boot camp. The teams still did one last 3-minute elevator pitch and we did something a bit extraordinary also this time around.
The teams also posted a document that was supposed to describe their business model for the judges. We posted this FinderBase business model description. Our team has effectively managed to almost entirely detach itself from reality and concentrate on the dream that we’re after with FinderBase.com. Feel free to comment our document.
Not surprisingly, we didn’t win.
But it’s interesting to see who did. The teams chosen by the judges well represent the ideology of the Aalto University as a home for scientific research. The top three were:
All of these ideas had a strong research background. All these teams have patented technology to base their solution on. The two first also have a physical product that they’re trying to build a prototype of.
Let’s have a quick look at the rest of the teams:
- Aalto Brain Company. A game.
- Audiodraft. A website.
- Barisma. A website.
- DreamTravel. A website.
- FinderBase. A website.
- Kassi. A website.
- LucSens. An iPhone app.
- Makumaku. A website.
- Relationship Games. A Facebook app.
- Videolla. A website.
- Shobble. A website.
Can’t blame the judges. Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM.
