Rocket.Chat wins the All Things Open Startup Competition

This week Rocket.Chat was at All Things Open (ATO) in Raleigh North Carolina to show our support for open source and to compete in the second ATO โ€œOpenโ€ pitch Competition. All Things Open is the largest open source, open tech, and open web conference on the east coast of the United States. Gabriel put on his best spacesuit and gave an out-of-this-world pitch to win the ATO 2017 Startup Competition.

In the final round, 5 startups pitched, for 5 minutes followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. The competition was judged by VCs, CEOs, and Founders from Accel, STI, Intel Capital, Lulu and RedHat. All five judges chose Rocket.Chat as one of their top three startups and were confident Rocket.Chat is a unicorn in the making.

Blockchain embraces open communication
