Launchpad Meetups are a new series of meetups, where startups pitch to a corporate's use case. It is a way to get startups in touch with large corporates, while these corporates have a quick way to find out which startups are of interest to them. At the second round of these meetups, we pitched our self-learning search solution to Oracle, during their "Big data and online retail" challenge. We won.
We are now talking to Oracle to determine the next steps of our collaboration. This might take a while, but in the meantime we have had a bit of good PR as a result of the Launchpad Meetup victory. And we’ll try a new Launchpad Meetup challenge for sure!
