    Guys, you made a fool out of yourself. Two identical ideas, while the 5min.com is executed much (but I mean much) better, not to mention they had the best presentation there (by far).
    Now everybody are talking about “how the competition was sold to a Spanish company by Spanish juries”, and that’s too bad… You made yourself look stupid!

    I was following it and I do agree that Sclipo was the best project. Not only they are very much business focuses, but their presentation was also very good. I really enjoyed the guy! Besides, he was the only one that talked about the team.

    Georgy,

    Sclipo team is from US, Germany, Poland and Spain. They’re located in Barcelona. Don’t come with the nationalist speech because it’s outdated.

    Sclipo.com is a educational 2.0 platform while 5min is a video repository. I was in the Bilbao event and it was crystal clear for me and it seems that also for the juries.

    Congrats sclipo.com, the organization and the rest of the competitors.

    Properazzi team has 12 different nationalities. They’re locatedub Barcelona.

    I think all 5 start ups are very good, and that’s a game, in my opinion 5min and sclipo were the best startups.

    Thanks
