Assitech was the absolute hottest startup when the first Live Crowdfunding Experiment in Norway was held under Technoport this week. Technoport and FundedByMe presented Norway’s first and live equity crowdfunding fair at Studentersamfundet where four startups presented themselves to sell shares to those wanting to invest.
Assistep, the device that gives extra support for climbing stairs, and helps elderly to stay active and independent, finished in an outstanding first place when they managed to reach out to a hungry crowd of investors.
NSE Alumni Halvor Wold and Erik Medbø overwhelmed the audience with their perfectly executed pitch, resulting in Rune Sævik, Chairman of the jury and investor at Investinor, took out his checkbook himself.
With an amazing rally in under a week, and over 600 000 NOK in equity funds received, other renowned nvestors stood in line to talk to the founders of Assistep.
This is just the beginning!
