We are exceedingly grateful to have won F Factor, the EU’s largest tech challenge, and one of the most prestigious globally. Described as the ‘Davos of Tech’, the event was held on the 17th June 2015 in London and was attended large audience along with some of tech’s greatest, including Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman.
Our engineers, Paul de Panisse Passis and Tiarvando successfully pitched the GyroGlove to a panel of judges including Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, TalkTalk cofounder and chairman Sir Charles Dunstone and ITV chairman Archie Norman. From hundreds of competing teams, GyroGear was crowned inaugural champions by none other than X factor supremo Simon Cowell.
