Three minutes may seem brief for a pitch, but it could also be the distinction between life and death, according to one of the presenters at Demo Day Vestland.

He pitched his product, Pre AID, a solution that leads to quicker response and treatment at the scene of an accident. Moreover, Demo Day Vestland brought together 23 investment-ready startups and a room filled with eager investors this week.
