We're Ping Pong Fight Club champions! [Video]
It was a heated Thursday night in a warehouse in Shoreditch, London when Funding Circle went up against 15 other companies in the second annual Ping Pong Fight Club: Battle of the Tech Titans. The competition was fierce, with 64 entrants in all attending.
Four Funding Circle team members entered the fray – Helene Hjelmvik, Rahul Pakrashi, and Samir Desai from Funding Circle UK and Nick Andrews from Funding Circle USA. After a couple hours of intense competition, the last matchup came down to a best-of-three set that went to the very last point, when Rahul beat out Facebook’s champion 12-10.
Congrats to Rahul and the rest of the Funding Circle team for a great showing and a night to remember!
