We Won Top Award at DEMO Asia 2012

Published on March 4, 2012

My hard work preparing for DEMO Asia was not wasted.

Hoiio API won the People’s Choice award!

That is winning 20K USD of accelerator program in Silicon Valley, 200K USD media exposure, and a chance to pitch 6min in DEMO US. BIGGEST PRIZE EVER!

I am very proud, and very happy, with my 6 min pitch on stage. Once the video is uploaded by the organizer, I will blog about it (:

The event is also covered by SGEntrepreneurs and VentureBeat. Some comments:

The Hoiio team has flair, too. They were smooth and fun on stage, showed some very clean code on the stage screen, and promised that it has more up its sleeve. - Matt Marshall, VentureBeat

More impressively Hoiio showed that their product works – proving how quickly a targeted mass sms can motivate a community of people. - Kristine Lauria, SGEntrepreneurs
