This is a video of James Sutton the founder of Bloomtrigger pitching at the Hub Fellowship Pitch Night in Curitiba, Brazil on the 31st October 2013. James was awarded 3rd place amongst strong competition from the other Brazilian entrepreneurs presenting that evening!

James was selected to participate in the Hub Fellowship 2013; an eight month accelerator programme for entrepreneurs in Brazil to develop their business models, which ended with a pitch night as the grand finale! Bloomtrigger was awarded a cash prize, along with a place as a Global Hub Fellow!

For James the Hub Fellowship was very much a personal challenge. When he arrived in Brazil a little over a year and half ago, he could barely understand what anyone was saying in Portuguese, let alone express himself in any impactful or intelligible way! So for him this night was the combination of countless hours chatting away in Portuguese, much frustration at congregating verbs and generally taking advantage of anyone willing to listen to him.

We would like to thank all the people at the Impact Hub Curitiba and the supporters of Bloomtrigger Brasil who believed in the project and helped us to launch in the first Brazilian school!
