Who am I?

My name is René Goretzka. I am 34 years old and based in Berlin, Germany. I have high interest in AWS and Serverless.

Why do I do this project?

I attend this Hackathon to train my skills using AWS Amplify and React-Native. Nice side-effect is that I like this project and will probably continue developing it after the Hackathon.

1Pitch - Day 0

The 1-minute pitch for startups

Executive Summary

1Pitch is a mobile application to connect startups and investors. Startups have problems finding investors fitting to their idea, capital needed and industry. Investors and business angels are always searching for promising startups to invest in. Startups can pitch their idea based on a 1 minute long audio recording with additional information about the current stage, capital needed, industry and executive summary. Investors are able to choose in which industry they are interested in, what startup stage and with the amount of capital they want to invest. Based on those criteria, 1Pitch will present startups with their 1 minute audio record pitch and investors can look up more information about the idea. In case of interest, they can directly connect with the startup.
