Local start-up competition Pitchora has just announced its three winners; Grocerly in first place, Matter Make in second place, and Fyorin in third place.

Earlier this week, the competition saw ten start-ups pitch their creative concepts to a panel of live judges over a period of two days. Pitchora’s winners enjoy a flurry of benefits – from seed money and advertising campaigns to accountancy services and office space – with the scale of the prize depending on the winner’s placement.

“We were absolutely thrilled with the overwhelming response and the quality of the participants,” Pitchora wrote.

“An extremely diverse range of start-ups took part in the competition which made the judging all the more challenging, and so a big thank you goes to all the participants, judging team, collaborators, and organisers – and a huge congratulations to our winners and runners up,” it continued.

Grocerly, the competition’s winner, is a grocery-shopping app which allows you to shop based on recipes. Matter Make, the runner-up, is a fabrication-based design and research studio based in Naxxar. Fyorin, which placed third, describes itself as a business banking eco-system that facilitates business banking for SMEs and financial institutions.

“Remember that this is just the beginning of an amazing journey,” said Jessica Camilleri, financial advisor at Pitchora partner Firstbridge.

“These three start-ups will be joining Basement2Boardroom for six months of incubation, attending ICE Malta courses, enjoying a six-month campaign from VibeFM, media exposure by Gadgets, and most importantly seed funding by GO Ventures & Evolve Ltd,” she continued.
