Think of it as the first audition for a big show, or the step you make before a (potential) call-back. Now, think of it in startup terms. The audition goes by the name Open Pitch Days, and the show – Startupbootcamp. Open Pitch Days is coming to Vienna on 14 May, and you have until 12 May to apply for a spot in the pitching sessions.
The Startupbootcamp team will invite the best 10 of all applicants to present their entrepreneurial ideas, get feedback, and make new contacts – both mentors and other startups. Each selected team will get a chance to pitch for five minutes in front of a panel of judges, among whom Florian Selch of Morawa, Gerald Bäck, co-founder of Archify, and Startupbootcamp co-founder Alex Farcet, followed by 25 minutes of feedback. The organisers will use the event to screen the participants, assess the potential of their ideas and the likelihood of them joining Startupbootcamp – essentially an accelerator programme with offices in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Berlin, among others.
To apply, or not to apply? And how?
Submissions are open to anybody interested, especially startups planning to join Startupbootcamp later on, and those working in the mobility, connectivity, and big data space sectors. Regarding the latter, here are a few reasons why. Applicants will be notified two days before the event whether they have been chosen or not. Don’t forget – you still have time to apply, and this is how to do it.
Pitch Day Vienna will take place at Sektor5 from 9 a.m.
