Zoom Goes Extreme in 2018!

Zoom is excited to sponsor the Extreme Tech Challenge 2018 (XTC). This will mark the second year of Zoom’s sponsorship in the world’s largest startup competition. Spearheaded by anchor judge Sir Richard Branson, XTC brings together targeted resources and world class advisors to help entrepreneurs execute their big ideas.

What kinds of big ideas? Look no further than last year’s finalists, who created the first flying camera in the world, a gel that stops traumatic bleeding in veterinary surgery, and a technology to recycle plastic into 3D printing filament.

As the most productive video communications service in the workforce, it’s natural that Zoom is sponsoring the Productivity vertical of XTC. Zoom enables modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable, productive platform for video/audio conferencing, chat, and webinars across mobile, desktop, and room systems.

“Zoom is an integral part of the entire XTC judging process. Our wonderful judges are all based in different countries and on different time zones. The ease of setting up a zoom call means it is free for users to dial in, and the video function with screen sharing allows us to all discuss individual start-ups, and gain vital input to pick the best of the best!” says Bill Tai, Co-Founder and CEO of XTC.

“As XTC is a global competition, we need to work across multiple time zones. Not only does Zoom help us do this with complete ease, it’s video features and screen-sharing help us gain live and immediate feedback with all key stakeholders, from USA and Hawaii, to Asia and the UK,” says Sabine Schindlbauer, COO of XTC.

We’ve had a great time evaluating the competitors in our vertical in last year’s competition, and we look forward to learning about new and exciting technologies on the horizon while judging this year! We are also giving out awesome Zoom prizes to the finalists and winners, so they can be more productive when collaborating on their productivity tools.
