The Start-Up Round is underway and the teams are milling about anxiously awaiting their turn to present.

Just to clarify, the Start-Up Round is a 40 minute round for teams to practice their presentations in front of judges.

The three areas covered are the 60-second elevator pitch, 15-minute investor presentation and 20 minutes of feedback. I got the privilege of watching airSwim begin its NVC journey.

AirSwim, the team comprised of Kyle Goldschmidt, Rugigana Kavamahanga, Matt Michaux, and Craig Musheno, confidently awaited their turn to present in the Roy Yates Room at the historic Multnomah Embassy Suites here in Portland.

The team presented their plan for an early stage telemedicine company that provides telemedicine service to physicians . This service uses the power of data and social networks to reduce the cost of healthcare and to continuously improve treatments. airSwim will target its network initially for the treatment of asthma and sleep apnea.

Rugigana Kavamahanga began with a captivating “Elevator Pitch” that summarized the team’s venture and captured their enthusiasm for this competition. Next, Craig Musheno began the presentation portion of the competition by addressing the most important aspects of the proposed venture. The specifics of the airSwim concepts were clearly presented and professionally outlined with an emphasis on the statistics and measurable monetary value.

I was equally impressed as Kyle Goldschmidt and Matt Michaux continued the presentation with confidence and maintained a high level of enthusiasm. Each member of the four-man team contributed pertinent information.

As the Start-Up Round wound down the judges recognized the team’s passion and commended airSwim for a job well-done.

“It was great. The judges feedback was very insightful and added to our confidence,” said airSwim team member Kyle Goldschmidt.

Good luck to airSwim and the rest of the NVC teams as the rounds continue.
