Koosmik enjoyed attending the 2019 edition of the San Francisco Jumpstarter Semi-Pitch Event after being shortlisted among 200+ startups. We were delighted to be among the 25 most innovative startups that got to pitch on scene at the Berkeley Sky Deck.
After exploring Silicon Valley, Grégoire Yakan (CEO) and Claude Grunitzky (Chairman) headed out to Berkeley for our 1:1 pitch. This was followed by the pitching session on October 10th. The competition was fierce, but we managed to be among the Top 5 startups selected for the Hong Kong Fintech Week. This landmark event will take place between the 4th – 10th November.
It’s truly special to be able to pitch at the HK Fintech Week
In February, Koosmik will also attend the Jumpstarter Grand Finale, where we’ll have a shot at winning a shared investment of up to US$5 million & a possible share of a US$100k cash prize.
For Grégoire Yakan, this will be a special moment because it means going back to where he started his entrepreneurial journey: “I’m thrilled to be back in Hong-Kong, as it brings back fond memories of past achievements”.
We are proud and thankful towards the Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund and its main HSBC for providing us with such an opportunity.
