Incooling won the top prize – €20K – and now advances to the Extreme Tech Challenge global bootcamp and category finals in San Francisco in May. Helena Samodurova delivered the powerful pitch, and Incooling CEO Rudie Verweij joined Helena on stage for the Q&A. ''It was definitely not the first time we were on stage pitching – pre-covid such events were a given and we were trained well. And although things are returning to how they were, there was this nervousness in the air – and everyone felt it. All the rush and excitement ... it was just like we were doing it for the first time, again,'' said Helena.
