Laava Tech Wins Polar Bear Pitching in Oulu, Finland
Laava Tech emerges as the winner at Polar Bear Pitching in Oulu, Finland. A hole in the ice on a cold February night in Northern Finland was the setting for one of the coolest (pun totally intended) pitching events in the world. Start-ups plunge down in the ice water and pitch to a panel of judges froma hole cut through the ice in the frozen Baltic Sea. Laava Tech CEO Tatsiana handled the ice water masterfully and delivered a pitch to win the whole competition! The 10 000€ prize money and trip to the Chinese Silicon Valley in Nanjing were sure to warm Tatsiana up after a couple of minutes in the freezing water!
