This week, axial3D pitched against 12 of Northern Ireland’s best startups for the opportunity to represent Northern Ireland in the Startup World Cup in San Francisco this May, which sees the overall winner securing a huge $1,000,000 investment in their company.
The regional heat of the Startup World Cup was held at one of Belfast’s most vibrant tech community zones, the Ormeau Baths, which is partnered with Barclays Eagle Labs. Niall Haslam, CTO at axial3D, pitched alongside some of Northern Ireland’s finest startups to showcase axial3D to an expert panel of judges and a packed auditorium.
The judges and audience then selected a winner, runner-up, and audience favourite. To our delight, axial3D was selected as the overall winner for the Northern Ireland cohort!
Now, axial3D will pitch alongside the regional winners from across the world in San Francisco in the Semi-Finals, and hopefully Grand Finale of the Startup World Cup!
This is just the latest achievement in a steady stream of accolades and acknowledgments for axial3D. Check out our recent wins and nominations below!
