On the 17th of June, The NATO Pitch Day took place in a digital environment with partners hosting their online pitches, discussions and rooms in all the homes of the attendees. During this digital event, live jury panels were located in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and Norfolk (US). Attendees also had the chance to engage directly with the startup participants via organized digital round-table sessions.
Thanks to the virtual space and platform that hosted the event, everybody had the chance to engage with the 10 finalists about their solutions to aid first responders in pandemic situations, and to watch the live Award Ceremony.
With a main stage set up in Hilversum, the Netherlands, we connected digitally to the jury members of the NATO Innovation Challenge seated in Rotterdam, Norfolk and Washington. Making use of the virtual space and platform allowed guests to interact with the finalists, see the startup pitches and follow the conclusion of the NATO Pitch Day live from the comfort of their own home.
