Blitzen to Represent Canada at Startup Nations in Seoul Korea

Blitzen cofounder Josh Wright will represent Canada at the 2014 Startup Nations Summit in Seoul Korea.

There he will pitch for a $100,000 prize and meet with representatives from global brands. You can vote for Canada here.

Blitzen, the first Canadian company to graduate from the AngelPad accelerator program in the US, earned its spot in Korea by improving the way businesses leverage web applications to get their work done.

When asked about his thoughts on this opportunity, Wright said, “This is a huge opportunity for Blitzen. I am excited to represent Canada and its rapidly growing startup scene.”

“While winning the cash prize would be amazing, putting up a solid performance for Canada and proving that Canada is the best place in the world for startups is even better,” he added.

Wright takes flight for Seoul on November 21 where he’ll join startup representatives from 40 other nations for a conference, summit, and the pitch competition for $100,000 plus a number of valuable perks.
