After the Official opening of Oslo Innovation Week, the afternoon continued with the event Live Crowdfunding: Own The Future hosted by MashUP Norway and FundedByMe, in collaboration with Oslo Innovation Week.
Selected music tech startups pitched their ideas at a live crowdfunding session. The audience had the opportunity to be the first to invest in future global companies in a fun and social setting. A grand jury of Paal Fure (Dentsu Aegis Network), Jørn Haanæs (Soundrop), Torleif Ahlsand (Northzone) and Anne Worsøe (Innovation House), gave feedback on the pitches. Hosts were Sigri Sevaldsen (657 Oslo) og Kjartan Slette (Unacast). The startups pitching was Bandify, vidFlow and Museai
vidFlow was chosen as the jury’s favourite and in addition to the 108.000 NOK funded during the event, they received 10.000 NOK from the jury. The audience showed some great interest in Bandify’s pitch, and funded 170.000 NOK during the event. Nevertheless, after three months, vidFlow’s had funded 2.1 Million NOK on their FundedByMe campaign.
