There were four other startups pitching to raise funds at the two events organised by pitchIN.
In the 5 to 10-minute pitch, founders Stanley Chee and Jeff Chan gave a presentation of SalesCandy’s founding story, app features, sales projections, market size, prospectus, etc. to an estimated crowd of 40 on Friday and 75 on Saturday.
