We’re all excited here to learn that of over 2,000 worldwide entrants, Captive Media is one of 25 finalists in Richard Branson’s Xtreme Tech Challenge for tech start-ups.
The shortlist was announced via a web-feed at a reception in San Francisco on Sunday night. 10 finalists will be invited to present at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January, before three are invited to pitch to Branson directly on his private island in the Caribbean. Headline sponsors include Samsung, IBM and a host of Silicon Valley venture capitalists.
Previous winners include Wanderu, Breathometer, and Doctor On Demand. We hear that kite surfing is practically a requirement too. All highly exciting, ‘though for now we’re keeping our feet firmly on the ground!
