    THIS IS A FREE EVENT

    After three fantastic events so far we are back again to help startups improve their pitching skills and get noticed by the investment community and the startup world.

    This month's event will be held at The Trampery in Old Street, home to the Publicis Drugstore and some of London's most exciting startups.  

    The format is simple: Startups pitch and mentors and the crowd help them with constructive advice.

    STARTUPS: Pitch up, present your funding or new business deck in three minutes and get valuable feedback, ideas and advice from mentors, other start ups, biz dev people, entrepreneurs and the odd investor.

    CROWD: Come along and learn, contribute and network.

    Here's a serious carrot for you: In the last session, the startups received advice from someone who had just raised £4.6m, for two start-ups, in the last six months alone.

    Whatever stage you are at, you will not only refine your pitching skills but also get your business in front of the startup community and benefit from their 'crowd-help'.

    The idea is that you'll come away with an improved deck, tips on how to present yourself and even strategy advice on how to take your business idea forward.

    On the night:

    6.30pm - 7.00pm Doors open and networking time

    7.00pm - 8.30pm Pitch your deck (10 slots available, including two on the night)

    8.30pm - 9.00pm Vote for the best deck

    9.00pm - Everyone down the pub for more networking

    Please email helloatpitchup [dot] events if you want to pitch your startup.

     

     

    PitchUp helps startups improve their chances of getting funding or a new business deal. The workshop crowd of mentors, investors, entrepreneurs and fellow startups work with up to 10 presenting startups to offer advice and recommendations that will accelerate the startup's chances of success.

    Charalampos Doukas , Researcher, Create-Net


    On his book “Building Internet of Things with the Arduino” The last couple of years I have built several projects that involve sensing and controlling systems remotely through the Arduino. At the same time I have used and built web apps on Cloud and mobile systems. The idea of combining the latter is basically the fundamental concept of the Internet of Things (IoT). Since there was no other book available that introduces readers to the concept of IoT and at the same time describes how to build projects I thought of writing my own!

    The book is divided into three sections: the first section introduces readers to the concept of the Internet of Things, sensors and actuators and the Cloud computing. The second presents the Arduino microcontroller platform and gives details on how to connect your Arduino to the Internet and also how to make it ‘talk’ to your Android phone. The last chapter presents the most common platforms for managing sensor data on the Cloud and gives instructions for building many sensing and controlling projects with the Arduino. It also guides readers to build their own Cloud-based applications and provides many ideas for IoT projects.

    What has been your favorite project? I have built a motion analysis system on a sock that uses a textile version of the Arduino and accelerometers. It can tell when someone wearing the sock has fallen and it can also transmit the users’ heartbeat to an Android app.

    Do you have any note-worthy engineering experiences?  Once I have been nominated the best paper award for a work on motion analysis and fall detection (and actually was late on the award ceremony). I consider the second note-worthy experience the writing of my book.

    Do you have an experiential stories you would like to share?  At the age of 12 I had built a relay switch for turning on the light by clapping my hands. The switch was so sensitive that when I started talking next to the microphone the lamp started to flicker until it got burned out!

    What are you currently working on? Evaluating products (like sensors and open hardware platforms) for the Internet of Things Organizing a community for the Internet of Things in Greece Doing research on medical sensors and the Internet of Things Trying to build a Cloud-based system for data mining of air quality data

    Decentralized cloud storage provider Storj Labs Inc. has announced that its second round of network testing called “Test Group B” has reached the 1 petabyte milestone of managed storage space.
    Test Group B is an in-depth test of the platform’s storage client DriveShare, a software that enables users to earn money by sharing extra hard drive space. The Storj Test Group B has reached 1,173 terabytes in storage space and currently supports 293 users online.
    “We’re extremely pleased by the support and validation we’ve received from our community,” said CEO Shawn Wilkinson in a statement. “We’re excited to release the world’s first crowdsourced cloud storage platform.”
    The Test Group B network test is set to run until late October, with increased rewards and test group participants. In recognition of the 1 petabyte milestone, Storj Labs has increased the testing rewards pool from 100,000 Storjcoin X (SJCX) to 1 million SJCX, which is currently worth around $16,000.
    DriveShare is an open-source software powered by the Storj network that is a part of the startup’s successful crowdsale campaign. The DriveShare client allows users to rent out unused hard drive or cloud storage space at the rates of Dropbox, Mega, Box and many other cloud platforms.

    This is a free webinar being run by software firm WoodWing which is being run for the retail sector.  It will reveal the results of a study by consulting firm Ovum about how well organisations in the retail sector are managing their digital assets (images, video, audio, text and more) - one of the key findings from the research being that retailers are wasting an enormous amount of time searching for files for use in marketing, merchandising and across a broad spectrum of business systems.

    In addition, there will be insight from the largest Dutch e-tailer, Bol.com, about how they've solved this challenge and the benefits the company enjoys now they can easily and effectively integrate their digital assets with their other business systems (CRM etc).

    The webinar is at 2pm UK time on Thursday 19th November.

    The link to register for the event is here: http://page.woodwing.com/webinar-retail-ovum-bol.html

    FULL DESCRIPTION OF THE WEBINAR:

    Retailers need to stop wasting their time: A Woodwing Webinar on better managing digital assets.

    Multi-channel communication and marketing automation drive continuous growth of stocks of media files in the retail sector.  Obviously, retailers must come to grips with these enormous stocks of digital assets - mainly images, but also video, audio, text and more. But how:

    • Can they get a handle on their digital assets?
    • Do they manage, use and share them to get the most out of them?
    • Do they ensure that their assets are used properly?
    • How strong is retailer´s awareness of the need for digital asset management (DAM)?
    • How well do they understand DAM?

    A study conducted by the consulting firm Ovum on behalf of WoodWing sheds light on these and many more questions. The study by Ovum is based on telephone interviews with 250 retailers in the United States and the United Kingdom. The results provide an overview of digital asset management in the retail industry. A key finding: Retailers waste an enormous amount of time searching for files.

    In this webinar, Sue Clarke, Senior Analyst IT - Information Management at Ovum, will present the results of the study and thus provide you with the basis for sustainable decisions.

    Furthermore, Stijn Kieft, Business Analyst - Product & Content Innovations at bol.com, will explain how the largest Dutch e-tailer has solved the challenge and what benefits the company enjoys by the integration of digital asset management with other business systems.

    This is a free webinar being run by software firm WoodWing which is being run for the retail sector. It will provide insight and advice on how retailers can better manage their digital assets (images, video, audio, text and more).

    As music streaming services take off, will marketers make the jump from radio and pay the bill? Or is it time we paid the piper?

    Personal digital music consumption is changing, from a world where paid-for downloads are dwarfed by illegal file sharing. Meanwhile, new services like Spotify have taken consumers by storm adding 1m users in a matter on months with no US launch. Streaming music, with social discovery and sharing is now in vogue, but can it survive?

    The folding of ad-funded music providers such as SpiralFrog and Ruckus, highlight the question of whether these business models are viable. The agency world meanwhile struggles to make the jump from old-school radio ads to the bells and whistles offered by these streaming services. And what are the implications and opportunities for marketers?

    With licensing fees that favour subscription (8% rev share or 40p per subscriber) over ad-funded models (10.5% rev share or 0.085 per play), is there any mileage in advertising anyway? If listeners have to dip into their pockets for streaming services, will the lure of illegal file sharing increase?

    Join the discussion as we explore the future for streaming audio services.

    Ever wonder how to take your app from idea to the app store?

     

    Join our talk as we guide you through how to take an idea and make it an App Store sensation. Sign up here. We will talk about the workflow and the resources available for each step of the way, from wireframing to design, to beta testing, to monetisation so you can get up and running the easy way.

     

    A step by step overview of the process

     

    Paying someone to make an app is expensive, so you often need to do it yourself, but the hardest part is getting started. We’ll talk about how to make a successful app from start to finish and give you an overview of the best tools and resources that are available for each step of the way. That way, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

     

    Making beautiful icons, finding a clever third party library, or testing an app on multiple platforms is not difficult when you have the right tools.

     

    Who is this talk for?

     

    This talk is non-technical in nature and aimed for everyone who wants to make an app.

     

    Sign up via our Meetup page.

    This timely seminar will focus on teaching quality in higher education and the introduction of the ‘Teaching Excellence Framework’ (TEF). 

    Delegates - including key policy makers and stakeholders from universities - will discuss proposals for the introduction of the TEF which were outlined in the recent Higher Education Green Paper, including the impact of the TEF on universities and students, implications of linking TEF results to tuition fee increases and strategies for effectively measuring teaching quality. 

    Further planned sessions look at how to support university staff to deliver high quality curricula, encouraging innovative course design and how to include diverse forms of higher education provision - for example two-year degrees, online learning and Degree Apprenticeships - within the framework, along with concerns about the effects on the quality of provision of the ‘casualisation’ of teaching contracts in some parts of the sector. 

    This timely seminar will focus on teaching quality in higher education and the introduction of the ‘Teaching Excellence Framework’ (TEF).

    The Europas, the European Tech Startup Conference & Awards will be held on June 14, 2016, in London. On one single day you will see great speakers from the US and Europe, deep-dive into niche discussion groups relevant to your business, network with Europe's key founders and investors, and enjoy a stunning awards dinner and party.

    Instead of a massive anonymous "congress", the majority of The Europas delegates are invited key players and experts, keeping the numbers low and the networking high quality.

    Founded in 2009 and still run today by Mike Butcher, The Europas are the premier awards for Europe’s hottest tech startups. While it concentrates on the newest companies on the scene, it also brings together the mid and late stage technology startups, as well as leading investors and media in the EMEA region. It’s a genuine, editorially driven, independent awards, judged by the community itself.

    The Europas is accompanied by a parallel track called PathFounders, the exclusive event for startup Founders, in particular those at an early stage.

    PathFounders will bring together Founders and Investors in a series of exclusive networking experiences, on the days either side of The Europas.

    Founders at The Europas will be able to upgrade to the PathFounders track, if they are invited...

    TechCrunch is the Official Media Partner and attendees of The Europas will automatically receive discounts on Disrupt Europe to be held later this year.
