Each year during the Conference Day we have a start-up pitch element in our program. During this event young entrepreneurs get the chance to pitch their innovating ideas in front of a large audience. The winner will be picked by the audience and will win an amount of money in collaboration with multiple partners. This way we want stimulate entrepreneurship among students.
To ensure that only the best start-ups go to the final pitch, a pre event will be held prior to the conference. All participants get the chance to pitch in which eventually only the three best ideas will get into the final at the Conference Day. During the pre-event which will be held on Tuesday evening the 3rd of September at Launch Café Groningen, the pitches will be judges by a panel of jury consisting of academics and professionals.
We have a couple of requirements for the start-ups. First of all the start-up needs to be founded by someone who was studying at the time and the start-up cannot exist longer than 3 years.
So, are you a young entrepreneur with a business founded in 2016 or later? Then this is the perfect opportunity for you to pitch your idea!
