Transformers Academy Wins $20K Pitch Competition at NY Tech Week!

Transformers Academy is proud to announce that our CEO, Olia Stasiuk, has won the prestigious $20K Pitch Competition at NY Tech Week! This remarkable achievement underscores the global resonance of the problems we are solving at Transformers Academy.



A Stellar Start to NY Tech Week

What could be better than kicking off NY Tech Week, with over 700 events and thousands of participants, by winning the pitch competition on Day 1? The victory was especially significant as it was based on real-time votes from the audience, reflecting genuine support and enthusiasm for our mission.


Meaningful Feedback

The most impactful moment came from a participant's heartfelt feedback: "Olia, do you know why I voted for you? Because you made us care for what you care!" This sentiment was echoed by many others who shared:


  • "You made everyone listen to you!"

  • "Your energy took over the room!"

  • "That was your aisle to walk!"


Winning among strong startups, some of which are fresh graduates from Techstars, was an incredible honor. We extend our gratitude to all finalists for their support and camaraderie, including Michelle Shocron from Parsed, Natalie Fairbourne and Jason Fairbourne from Yoodlize, Ori Kalmus from AKALA, Inc., Sandra Nam from Qiqo, and TC Cuthbertson from AisleGo. You are all winners in our eyes!



Special Thanks

We would like to express our massive thanks to Rocket Mixer and Andrea Garau for selecting us into the finals and organizing such a fantastic event at the WeWork office in the Financial District. We also extend our gratitude to all the sponsors who made this event possible.


Event Highlights

We wrapped up Day 1 with the Founders Friends night event organized by Hustle Fund. Stay tuned for updates from Day 2, which includes the Founders Breakfast organized by Everywhere Ventures and NYC Demo Day by both NYC Techstars Teams, led by Keith Camhi, KJ Singh, and Christine Hong.
