Congratulations to London companies Flock and AidTech for being announced as semi-finalists in IBM SmartCamp's global pitch competition.

It’s been 8 years since IBM began producing IBM SmartCamp, a global pitch competition providing founders everywhere with coaching, mentorship, connections, and a stage to share their businesses with the world.

Every year the competition has evolved to provide more value to an increasingly more impressive group of startups. For the last two years, a partnership with Silicon Valley angel investor Jason Calacanis has helped provide 10 semi-finalists with an incredible opportunity to come to San Francisco, demo at LAUNCH Festival, and compete for $25,000.

This year there were twenty-six local SmartCamp: Build events where early-stage startups in San Francisco, London, Tokyo and beyond went head-to-head pitching their companies to compete for a spot in the 2017 SmartCamp semi-finals.

A group of judges from IBM and LAUNCH then judged the winners from each city to select ten semi-finalists. Click link to see complete list!
