Pitch@Palace – it’s voting time + a great short video on wearables

Our previous item on Pitch@Palace introduced this brilliant pitching event for entrepreneurs. Now the pitches have been put on the web for everyone to vote for.

We highly recommend readers to have a look at the pitches and vote for your favourite for the “People’s Choice” award – there are lots of health-related start-ups to choose from…overall the pitches give a great feel for what is hot just now.

And whilst you’re in video mode, have a quick look at this very short, excellent summary of recently launched wearables that Prof Mike Short kindly made me aware of today – a “must watch”!
