We’re absolutely delighted to say that we’ve made it to the final 12 in the Innovator Showdown at RootsTech 2016!
RootsTech is the largest family history event in the world, held annually in Salt Lake City, Utah. Combining a huge exhibition with talks and classes on family history, it attracts tens of thousands of visitors, from seasoned genealogy experts to absolute beginners.
As part of RootsTech, the Innovator Showdown competition aims to highlight innovative technology products that service the family history market. We’ll be attending the conference and battling it out to win part of the total $100,000 cash and in-kind prizes.
It’s so important to us to have been recognised as innovators in our industry, by one of its leading players – RootsTech is run by FamilySearch, the largest genealogy organisation in the world.
This year the conference runs from 3-6 February, during which we’ll be pitching to secure a place as one of the 6 finalists and to present Twile on stage to thousands of attendees.
We had an amazing 2015 after launching our family history timeline in April and have worked closely with our customers to build Twile into a tool they love. It looks like 2016 could be even more exciting!
We want to thank everyone who uses Twile, everyone that has helped us spread the word and all of the people that have given us advice and support since we started.
If you’re going to RootsTech this year, please come along to our booth and say ‘hello’ – we’d love to thank you in person!
