You may have heard the news about IBM SmartCamp, the multi-city competition between rising technology startups from around the world.
If not, take a look at what’s in store and how you can pitch your startup by heading over to the website. Yep, that’s right! The winner gets a $25k investment from LAUNCH and a spot in their incubator, plus a whole bunch of other perks from IBM and top startup strategists.
Lucky for me, given that I’m a member of the IBM Global Entrepreneur team here at IBM, I was able to see how last year’s ten finalists accessed both IBM and LAUNCH to set their startups up for technology business disruption. And I can say first hand, that I am PROUD.
Take a look at how Lawbooth, a startup team hailing from Boulder, Colorado, was able to add the power of Watson to intelligently refine the attorney-client relationship, while adding a personal touch through the facilitation of video conferencing to make employing a lawyer quicker and easier in the cloud.
If you want to be like Lawbooth or any of the other semi-finalists who advanced their startup solutions in last year’s SmartCamp competition, head on over to this year’s SmartCamp website and request an application to pitch in your city.
