We don't usually blog about the business side of Triggertrap (mainly because our products are clearly way sexier than drab spreadsheets showing how well we're doing), but we've got some exciting news we'd like to share with you all - and that's that we're one of the three most awesome startups in all of the EU! If that sounds like a slightly mad claim - well, sorry, but it's true! Tech All Stars is a competition run by the European Commission which selects the 12 best European startups, and faces them off against each other in a pitching battle in front of some of the most influential VCs in Europe, including DFJ Esprit, Frontline Ventures, EC1 Capital, Accel Partners, Index Ventures, Balterton Capital, and many others.
What does all of this mean? Well, if you, like us, are just huge fans of photography rather than knee-deep in the world of startup finance, let's borrow Tech Allstars own words: "It's the most qualified panel of judges. Virtually every top VC in London is represented." Yikes!
In short, it goes without saying that we're insanely flattered to be picked in the top three of the final twelve startups. It's great to be reminded that some very Big Cheeses are interested in our products and the way we get them out into the world. And, inspired by the presence of such a large group of VCs, we've decided to carpe some serious diem and kick off a brand new round of funding!

Meanwhile - let us once again thank you, our brilliant customers, for helping us get this far. Without you, Haje would still be tinkering alone in his bedroom (and no one wants that, do they?).
