I have written before about Twile, an online service that allows family historians to create rich, visual timelines of their family history, made up of milestones and photos from their ancestors’ lives. See https://duckduckgo.com/?q=site%3Aeogn.com+twile&t=h_&ia=web for a list of my past articles about the product.
The following announcement was written by the folks at Twile:
Twile will be present at PITCH@PALACE BOOT CAMP Held by HRH The Duke of York, KG at Harwell Space Campus, Oxfordshire Friday 14th October, 2016
Doncaster based Twile has been selected to attend Pitch@Palace Boot Camp on Friday 14th October, 2016.
The Duke of York founded Pitch@Palace in 2014 to support entrepreneurs with the amplification and acceleration of their business ideas by connecting them with potential supporters including CEOs, Angels, Mentors and key business partners. Twile took part in Pitch@Palace on Tour in Sheffield last month.
What happens at Boot Camp?
42 Entrepreneurs have been selected to attend Boot Camp. Participants will hear from industry experts and Pitch@Palace Alumni, and receive support and mentoring. A Panel of judges will select up to 15 Entrepreneurs to Pitch at Pitch@Palace 6.0 at St. James’s Palace on 2nd November, 2016.
Twile will have the opportunity to undertake a 3 minute Pitch to an audience of CEOs, Angels, Mentors and key business partners.
Twile allows users to create a timeline of everything that’s happened in their family, from their earliest known ancestors right through to today. Tapping into a genealogy market worth $2 billion, Twile aims to make family history more engaging for younger generations.
Pitch@Palace People’s Choice Vote
Twile will take place in the Pitch@Palace Peoples Vote which will launch soon after Boot Camp. This is a vote based around 1 minute pitch video which will be filmed at Boot Camp.
Kelly Marsden, Twile Co-founder said “We are delighted to be taking part in the Pitch@Palace bootcamp. This is a great opportunity to raise our profile within the investor community and showcase our product to a wider audience”.
The Duke of York said:
“I am immensely proud of the achievements of the Entrepreneurs in the Pitch@Palace programme, they have shone a light on the diversity and imagination across the country, clearly demonstrating that pursuing an idea or dream can be realised with knowledge and determination.”
