Your vote is needed! Help MyKontiki to win a startup competition

Thanks for all who voted us.
The voting is now ended. We were the best Finnish startup among over 2000 participants.

A Finnish startup is developing a new service MyKontiki, an online adventure travel community and a mobile social challenge game not seen before. Now your support is needed, that we can make this a service for all of us, globally. (No need to hide this: I have a high interest in this being the partner in this startup.) We are now competing in The Summit, one of the big startup programs in the world.

The Summit Kilimanjaro is a competition where three startup founders who apply to be part of ALPHA at The Summit can win and join a group of leading tech entrepreneurs, investors and influencers on the trip of a lifetime. They will climb Africa’s highest mountain in June, and in November share their stories at The Summit in Dublin.

The competition is tough. Initially there were over 2100 startups. After the first screening 200 was selected to the second round, MyKontiki among those. The next 50 will be selected via an open voting based on one minute videos.

Help us to be among those 50!

It’s easy. Just open the link below, and click ‘Like’. (Note: You need to have Facebook account to do that.) You have one week to do that. The voting ends on Friday 18 April.

Below is a screenshot you will see when you open the link or click the image.

Some words about the service: MyKontiki is still in beta phase. The user interface needs to be polished. There are bugs. Language and used expressions need to be checked. (Note that you can register using English or Finnish language version.). See this video to learn more about MyKontiki.

This is the world of Lean Startup life. We must be brave enough to ask user feedback in a very early stage of the development, and change our direction – pivot – when needed and as quickly as possible. – I appreciate if you let us know what you think about MyKontiki.

(I know mine, but) “What’s your next adventure?”

    Cool stuff, supported! Let’s see what happens, all good things wishes!

    • A big thank! We ended up being 32nd of the 200 startup on the second round (the best Finnish startup). The minimum target for this round was to be among top 50, so we made it – with your support! 😀 – Still a couple of steps before getting to Kilimanjaro!
