Canatu Takes Winning Spot at Innovate!100 Stockholm Pitch Slam Event

San Francisco, CA & Stockholm | Posted on June 7th, 2010

Guidewire Group, the world's leading analyst firm focused exclusively on startups and emerging markets, held a regional 'Pitch Slam' event in Stockholm, Sweden on June 1, 2010 as part of the Innovate!2010 competition and top honors at the event went to Canatu. Based in Finland, Canatu is a leading developer of a new class of versatile carbon nanomaterial-based components. The runner-up at the event was TaxiPal, and two other companies tied as the second runners-up: BehavioSec and No Excuse Accounting.

TheInnovate!2010 Pitch Slam in Stockholm is one of over 20 Pitch Slam events that Guidewire Group is hosting this year across Europe and the United States. At each Pitch Slam, startups are evaluated by a panel of expert judges using the G/Score, Guidewire Group's proprietary assessment methodology for evaluating startup success and business viability. The judges at the Stockholm Pitch Slam were: Lea Bajc, Investment Manager, Northzone; Kaushal Chokshi, Chairman and Founder, Quickstart Global; and Richard Lind, Director, Technology and Platforms at Microsoft AB.

The G/Scores will be aggregated from all of the Pitch Slams, normalized across markets, stages and segments, and then ranked to determine the Innovate!100. Innovate!2010 partners with market leaders like Best Buy, HP, Microsoft, Motorola, O2, RIM, Oracle and SWIFT and serves as a platform for these corporations to quickly identify and partner with high-potential startups.
