Thank you all for participating and attending live and online. We would like to apologize for the error in the data exported from the voting Form, and offer our sincere apologies to the projects awarded (wrongly) at the pitch competition.

We take full responsibility and we communicated internally with all projects and jury members the issue we discovered after a thorough verification from exporting the Google Form data to an excel file hat mixed up the order.

Hopefully this will remain in our memories as a funny situation. The Miss World contest had the same issue live on tv, on stage, in front of millions. So I can proudly jump on the grenade and say: I was wrong! … somehow, and I take full responsibility. Mea culpa. #thecursecontinues. Congrats to all participants for the efforts!” – says Ionut Vilceanu, co-founder of COINsiglieri and main partner of the competition.
