InnoPitch Award 2012 – Interview with Josep Virgili, RedEddy

Two weeks before the grand presentation at the Young Innovators Unconvention’ Town Hall Session we asked InnoPitch Award 2012 six finalists to briefly anwer four questions in order to present themselfs out to the world. Check out Josep Virgili (JV) answers:

European Young Innovators Forum: How did you hear about EYIF and the InnoPitch Award 2012? JV – We heard about it through Oxford Entrepreneurs. One of the founders comes from Cranfield University and when we started to look at building a company we looked around for entrepreneurial hubs, and the one that we had closest was Oxford. We got in touch with Oxford Entrepreneurs and we attended to some of the great events they organise. Then, a few weeks ago, in one of their newsletters they mention this competition and we thought it could be great to take part in it, so here we are.

EYIF – What are your expectations from participating at the InnoPitch Award 2012?
JV –  Our business is about technology, and we have a technology background. So we are strong there. But we soon realised that we also need a lot more to make RedEddy successful, so we are going to every event we hear about. To get exposure, to get feedback and to meet people than could help us move things forward. After a few events, we have a better strategy and we have great people helping us. From InnoPitch we expect the same, useful feedback and great people.

EYIF –Why will you win? (what is your strong card)
JV -Because we have an immense passion for what we are doing! We have also received quite a bit of interest from the prototype of the our platform.

EYIF –Who are you going to thank if you win?
JV –I guess there would be a lot of people to thank. You start alone in this, but as you go on, a lot of people contribute to the project, and of course, we are both very lucky to have such supportive friends and family. It will be a long list, get ready for it!
