Auka was selected as one of the companies to pitch in the fintech category of the challenger pitch battle at the Uprise Tech festival in Dublin.
UPRISE Festival Europe is a two-day tech and talent festival held in Dublin, Ireland and attracted 105 speakers, 500 startups, 60 exhibitors and more than 2,000 attendees.
The other categories were blockchain/crypto and healthtech. Each category was judged by a panel of investors specialising in these specific sectors. The judges and the audience gave each startup feedback after their pitch and then pick the startup pitch product (more about the new European-targeted product that we pitched, next week…) with the “highest potential”.
We’re really happy to announce that Auka won the fintech round of the challenger pitch battle and placed second overall in the grand finale for the best product. The winner, voted by attendees, was an Irish healthtech company.
Well done to our head of customer success, Maria Akkuratnova, for a fabulous pitch and presentation delivered flawlessly.
