what a great evening. Thank you very much to all of you who attended, pitched and supported the first This Week in Startups Paris Meetup. I will write a full wrap up tomorrow but for now lets focus on the winner of the Paris Meetup – and nearly the overall global winner: Yoocasa.
Yes, you heard right. While we all were having fun at the bar Jason had a really hard time to take the final decision who won the global meetup. It was a tie between Shoefittr and our winner in Paris. In the end he decided for Shoefittr but also said that if he would personally invest in one of the companies he would choose Yoocasa because they have the bigger vision and also might get a bigger exit.
To give you the chronology of the evening you will find the pitch of Yoocasa at the Paris Meetup (thank you to Alex Delivet for filming), the pitch of Axel Cateland live on the This Week in Startups show and the long road to the announcement of the global winner.
I think this a truly awesome feedback for Axel Cateland and the team of Yoocasa. If you would like to contact Axel Cateland and take a look at Yoocasa, here are the links:

The next global Meetup will be on July 21st / 22nd as it is scheduled for Asia this time meaning that the event would start at around 5am in Paris (not noon like I mentioned in the video).
I will keep you updated on how Paris is getting involved in this. So stay tuned! All the pitches, information about the startups, slides, links will be posted in the next couple of days.
Alors, encore un grand merci a vous tous et à la prochaine!
