The Six-time-award-finalist PiggyBaggy takes it’s pitching show on the road

Typically participating to international conventions is too expensive for startups. The Helsinki based cleanweb startup CoReorient Ltd. behind the PiggyBaggy social delivery service has another story this fall. The company has been selected as an award finalist or won a completely free participation in six international conventions.

The company’s positive problem is coming up next week. The 4-person-startup will split in three to pitch not only at SXSW Eco in Austin but at the same time in the competing European smart green innovation conference Ecosummit in London. And the same dates are topped with White Bull tech summit in Barcelona where PiggyBaggy will join in together with 11 other Finnish tech startups. Later in the fall the PiggyBaggy’s international tour continues to Brussels, Reyakjavik, and Dublin.

The startups participate to conventions to present themselves and to seek investment. PiggyBaggy/CoReorient has taken part in projects with public funding such as European Commission Horizon 2020 and seeks seed funding preparing for a larger A round funding.

PiggyBaggy’s pitching programme:
SXSW Eco, Austin, Oct 5-7 (pitching competition finalist)
Ecosummit, London, Oct 6-7 (invited speaker)
White Bull Summit, Barcelona, Oct 5-7 (award finalist)

E-Commerce, Paris, Sep 21-23 (award finalist)
GUE/NGL Mobility as a service meeting, Brussels, Oct 14 (invited speaker)
The Nordic Nature and Environment Prize, Reykjavik, Oct 27 (award finalist)
Web summit, Dublin, Nov 3-5 (participant)
