8 March 2011
TipGain (formerly BarGain) the winners of UCL’s e-Challenge 2010, gained third place in the prestigious Latin Moot Corp competition in Brazil judged by a panel of South America’s elite venture capitalists.
Competing against twelve teams from the UK, Canada, Colombia, Brazil and the USA Toledo Hung and Gustavo Gorenstein (current students from UCL’s MSc in Technology Entrepreneurship) presented their innovative social marketing concept for retailers.
Following an excellent performance in the semi-finals, TipGain was selected as one of the four teams to progress to the final stage of the competition. Against far more established competition TipGain emerged as the second runner- Gorensterin commented that ‘….the team was delighted to hold its ground against such fierce competition, we got great advice and contacts and we have high expectations for the future of TipGain’.
