Early and seed stage startups are invited to apply to the Fifty Founders battle at TechChill and compete not just for investor attention, but also the main prize.
The winner will receive 10 000 EUR in cash - no equity and no strings attached! The competition is hosted in partnership with Startup Wise Guys, the leading B2B, SaaS startup accelerator in Europe.
TechChill is reinventing its pitch battle format this year. In previous years many promising startups didn't get to pitch on the big stage, as the event only offered the opportunity to the top five finalists. This year, the event will showcase 50 of the most promising startups and offer them all stage time on the first day of the event to pitch their story and direct access to an audience of international VC's, business angels, accelerators, media and of course, the official jury.
The finalists will still take the main stage on the last day to an audience of 2000 people and compete for the 10 000 EUR prize in cash, with no strings attached, for the winning team.
All seed and early stage startups are welcome to apply, with no country restrictions.
