The final session on day one of HR Tech Europe was a start-up pitching competition entitled italent. It was organised by Jerome Ternynck, CEO of SmartRecruiters.

Each start-up pitched to delegates and a judging panel for five minutes and then took questions from the judges. The delegate applause for the pitch was then measured on an iphone app clapometer.

It was a great session – delegates got to hear from the founders of the start-ups all about how they see recruitment (all were recruitment products) and how their product could benefit them.

Well done Miiatech for winning and Work4Labs for being runner-up. The winner now gets written about by all the other entrants – a neat move. each of the other five start-ups agreed to write a blog post about the winning product.

I videoed all the pitches, which I hope you find useful.
