SPIXII wins the 01/10/100 Pitch-Off at London Tech Week 2017
The inaugural 01/10/100 Pitch-Off last night was won by SPIXII. The automated insurance intelligent agent company competed against two other startups, picking up the award from a panel of judges from Samsung, Vodafone, Rooster Punk and Supper Club.
SPIXII is working with insurers to develop digital agent technology. Powered by neuroeconomics and AI, it’s designed to make the process of buying insurance fully automated – therefore quick, simple and customer-centric. Imagine talking to a friend or family member about what insurance product you should buy. SPIXII works on the same principles. SPIXII also aims to make the digital agent more proactive; for example, the agent could give you a friendly nudge if you’re going abroad without full cover.
The judges commended SPIXII on its clear presentation, obvious application to industries beyond insurance, and simple, persuasive messaging. The company will now receive a package of mentoring from Samsung and its partners over the coming year, with its story being following on Alphr and IT Pro. However, they commended both MovieSweep and SoundVault on their excellent pitches – while there was only one winner, all were brilliant.

Co-hosted by Alphr and IT Pro and sponsored by Samsung, 01/10/100 was launched in 2016 to celebrate the diversity and talent of the UK’s startup culture. The event is in its second year with 2017 marking the debut of the Pitch-Off format.
