Modlist wins upSTART Belfast Pitch Battle

Team Staratcus had rather an exciting time last wednesday-  and exhausting… oh so very exhausting.

After months of preparation, we welcomed 27 tech startups to Belfast, for our first ever Startup pitch battle ‘upSTART Belfast’ which took place during this year’s Digital DNA.  

These 27 intrepid startups battled it out before a 10-strong panel of industry leaders and investors to win a prize fund worth £50K.

Amongst all of the drama, excitement, and technological innovation, one Startup really stood out for the judges-  Modlist.

Modlist is a new online discovery engine for people in search of modest fashions.  Company founder Romana, delivered sleek, polished and engaging pitches and impressed the judges with her industry knowledge, scaleable business model, and demonstrable market traction.  It was pretty much a masterclass on how to pitch effectively.

Of the 27 startups, 5 made it through to the final to deliver a pitch deck, and face grueling questions from the judges.  The other 4 finalists were Gecko Governance, Glistrr, Hub Controls, and Effy.  

Check out the image gallery below for a snapshot of what went on.  

There will be plenty of Startup pitch competitions to come from the team at Startacus, so sign-up to our newsletter and follow us on Twitter for application updates.
