Congratulations to Francois Poirier of MakerBloks, the winner of the 16th Founder Showcase CrowdPitch Competition! Makerbloks creates small, reactive building blocks that allow anyone to learn and build electronic circuits without any technical background. The company took first place at the Montreal TechCrunch Pitch-Off, which led to them attending TechCrunch Disrupt in New York to showcase their new product.

Francois was among the top 1/3 of vote getters, and his pitch stood out amongst all of the others because it was exceptionally clear and concise. Well done, Francois!

Here is his short pitch:
