Web Summit 2018 | PITCH: Startup Battle Semi-Finals

2018 has provided our team with some truly great opportunities to promote Aristotle and further achieve our mission to voice-activate the world’s databases. Earlier this month, we traveled to Lisbon, Portugal for the annual Web Summit, named “the best technology conference on the planet” by Forbes. The three-day conference gathered over  70,000 people from all corners of the world. CEOs of technology companies, fast-growing startups, policymakers and heads of state came together to discuss some of the most ground-breaking trends and innovations of our time.

We were honored to exhibit as part of the BETA Startup Track in the main showroom as well as participate in PITCH: Startup Battle. After winning the group division and quarter-final, Aristotle earned a spot in the Semi-Finals and took Centre Stage, in front of a panel of 25 expert judges, to compete against the remaining top 16 startups for a place in the Finals. That weekend, Aristotle placed 12th out of 160 companies from a selection pool of over 1,000+ applicants.

“It was a phenomenal conference and I was honored to represent Bouquet.ai on that stage,” says Adrien Schmidt, CEO, and Co-Founder. “This competition affirmed that what we are doing with Aristotle will change the way companies use and understand data. As a whole, the companies on that stage were a testament to the bright future of technology – we have so much to look forward to.”

“It was a pleasure to have met and work with the Bouquet.ai team for this year’s Web Summit,” says Daniel Meijer, PITCH Manager at Web Summit. “Out of over 1,000 applicants, the team made it to the semi-final of PITCH on Centre Stage. The standard of the startups this year was the best we’ve ever had at Web Summit which is a testament to Adrien and the team. I look forward to seeing what they achieve in the future.”
