Business Pitches

Oana Korda - Woogie Woogie is an alien buddy that makes learning and discovery fun for children. Using AI and machine learning, their device is able to understand what each child is interested in, delivering personalised facts and stories to help them develop.
Today, our team of aliens consists of 8 awesome people, all driven by two motivations: building something tangible - a physical device and, making a difference in the educational area, using the latest technologies.

Tinashe Chipawe - Cocoon London Cocoon London is an environmentally focused skincare company with a mission to reduce global cosmetic packaging waste.
The problem is that each year worldwide the cosmetics industry produces over 100 billion units of packaging. Everyday consumer product packaging accounts for approximately one third of all landfill waste in the UK; that's over 40,000 tonnes of packaging going to landfill every day.
The solution is a fluid dispensing assembly and system for viscous liquids, such as, but not limited to, cosmetics creams, lotions and medicament creams. The fluid dispensing assembly also operates as an airless discharge pump system without the addition of a completely separate pump unit.
