An expert panel of startup experts praised OceanHub at Oslo Innovation Week on Tuesday for its business accomplishments and community technology that is building traction in the prosperous Ocean Space.
As one of 50 Oslo-based startups chosen to present at the Oslo Innovation Week’s 100 Pitches Program, OceanHub CEO Christian Teigland received high marks from both the crowd and the panel of four judges for his energetic presentation and business case summary - delivered in under three minutes.
"It is clear to me that you will be successful - and you already are," said Lauren Guido, Crowd-Founder of Sustainability Hub Norway, in an interview the day after the event. As one of the judges, Guido said that OceanHub is a “great idea" whose greatest potential is its appeal to the international markets and investors.
"OceanHub was mentioned in the jury meeting several times," said Andreas Johnsen of the Telenor Group, another Oslo Innovation Week judge. "The most positive, in addition to a great pitch performance, was that you seem to have a lot of traction and already are making money."
Tuesday's pitch program was one of 50 events organized by Oslo Innovation Week, which brings together entrepreneurs and innovators along with technology-minded people. This year's goal is to present “real business solutions” to the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
As a presenter, OceanHub attracted attention from prominent investors at the event as well as on social media with photos and mentions on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
