Why do you deserve to win Get in the Ring?

James Sands: “I believe that today there is too little creativity in the world, people are too focused on iPhones and iPads. I am creative and I deserve to win because my app brings creativity back into the real world.”

What do you hope to achieve?

“First of all I want to get the app selling. Secondly, I want to start a trend that allows 3D art to grow and become more popular. Maybe we could even start a 3D art festival, stimulating a 3D revolution.”

What are you looking forward to most at Get in the Ring?

“I am looking forward to all of it, but mainly the final battles. Actually, I get nervous before public speaking, but I just want to be  a part of it and learn so many things along the way, it's fantastic!”

Other startups are focussing more on creating social impact, your app is more creative. How does your app contribute to a better world?

“My product can help advertising professionals creating work for their clients, or creative agencies wanting to make interesting and different campaigns. I want to get people to create stuff again.”

Did you have time to create any art in Medellin?

“I would have loved to! But unfortunately I don’t have time with all this going on.”
