We're thrilled to announce that Pamela Wallgren from Finch is this year's Pinc Founder of the year. On Tuesday's event, Nordic Female Investor Meetup, we had 9 companies pitching to investors with representatives from Bonnier Ventures, Almi Invest, Hadean Ventures, Tassaka Invest, and Brightly Ventures. We had 3 incubator companies pitching and Finch was one of them. Here is the jury's motivation:
With an extraordinary pitch, presenting a time disruptive and scalable business idea. The team have, with business experience, developed a company in a traditional industry. Born global, saving resources, making a profitable project and the job fun again by letting an artist be an artist.
This year was the first time we had a prize of 100 00 SEK for the winning company and it was sponsored by TicTac Interactive. We asked Pamela from Finch what are they going to do with the money and since they are planning on expanding the coming years the money is going towards building up a stable ground with a lawyer, accountant, and other consultants.
It's a huge honor to win a pitching contest with so many amazing companies pitching. We are so happy and proud but also extremely thankful for all the encouragement and support we've gotten from Minc. We celebrated with home delivery from Foodora which we enjoyed in bed and the next day with a nice lunch with the whole team - Pamela Wallgren, Finch.
Congratulations Pamela! You did a great job!
