Pitch Arena 5
JULY 8TH, 2021
The event is designed to bring growth companies together with large investors. In addition to matching attractive, pre-screened companies with investors, the event also has a clear educational component. To this end, the event sets out to share insights with aspiring entrepreneurs with respect to the skills necessary to building strong business ideas and presenting them in a compelling fashion. The jury of large investors is also selected to share valuable knowledge with the intention of helping participating companies grow and prosper.
In this way, the event should inspire aspiring entrepreneurs and offer investors access to attractive investment opportunities.
Each Founder gives an 8’ pitch presentation in the growth company competition, followed by a 10’ Q&A with a team of jury members. The jury consists of established capital owners. In addition, the audience votes anonymously to rank the quality of the business ideas.
