The second JumpStart Connect was held in conjunction with the SITF Meet-the-Members (MTM) X'mas Get-Together on 4 December 2014 at Plug-in@Blk71 with more than 150 guests from the ICM industry attended. This time, the theme for the event was retail solutions to suit the overall X’mas atmosphere.
The event started off with SITF’s Executive Director, Ho Semun giving updates about SITF’s upcoming events, activities as well as new staff additions.
Next up, the spotlight turned to the invited startups to fire off their elevator pitches to the invited guest judges which include Jean Yip Group, Konica Minolta, Denni International, Sheng Siong Supermarket and Far East Flora.
After the fast-paced pitching session, the judges had a difficult time selecting the Best Pitch Prize which was eventually awarded to Ms Christine Liu from StaffOnDemand. Mr Michael Sim from StarHub Ltd presented the prize to Christine.
The evening ended off with networking and refreshments.
