Start-up Contestants

Spread your ideas in a fun way

Within the start-up community, an “elevator pitch” is a short summary of your business model, ideally delivered in less time than it takes to ride an elevator, but compelling enough to get a follow-up meeting. To win an investor's heart, you have to get your own "elevator pitch" ready.

This competition will give startups opportunities to:

  • Win up to US$200K cash prizes in just 60 seconds
  • Meet potential business partners & investors individually
  • Attend intensive trainings
