Now they have named the six finalists. These six startups are set to pitch live in Lisbon on November 9, Web Summit Day Two.
They’ll be pitching their companies to a distinguished judging panel of industry experts, who will name three winners and award a total of $250,000 in cash plus world-class, co-innovation support and opportunities.
The startups will be scored on their potential to expand new markets, compatibility with Cisco’s technology and business objectives, creative differentiation, and calibre of their talent to go to market.
