A redefined Pitch your Startup competition

Due to the current health situation, the semi-finals and Grand Finale of the Pitch Your Startup competition will take place during the international tech conference, ICT Spring Europe, on September 15th, 2020 at the European Convention Center Luxembourg.

The last round of semi-finals of Pitch Your Startup will take place on September 15th, 2020 in the morning, in the frame of ICT Spring Europe, organised by FARVEST and its community IT One. In total, 36 startups will pitch in front of a jury in an attempt to win a place in the Grand Finale, held in the evening on the same day. As a reminder, the remaining categories in this year’s competition are:

  • AI, Machine Learning & Big Data: a startup using artificial intelligence, machine learning, particularly in relation to Big Data to improve an element of the status quo or outright disrupt it.
  • Cybersecurity: a startup whose primary technology improves or creates new security technology or outright disrupts the sector.
  • Supply Chain: a startup who aims to help established supply chain and/or logistics actors in developing faster, better, cheaper, more efficient/sustainable service for their client.

Exceptionally this year, the AR, VR & 3D Modelling, Digital Marketing and Event Tech categories will not be part of the 2020 edition.

The Grand Finale of this season’s Pitch Your Startup, that will be held on the same day of the global tech conference, during the Gala Dinner, will bring together the 8 finalists, who will be asked to pitch again their project in front of a jury composed of seasoned professionals.

The winners of the AI, Machine Learning & Big Data, Cybersecurity, and Supply Chain categories will, therefore, be joined by the winning startups which participated in Human Capital Europe (in November 2019) and European Finance Summit (in March 2020) sessions. Those startups are UPCITI (Smart Mobility category), Hunteed (HR Tech), Sikoba (Fintech), INSquary (Regtech), and Descartes Underwriting (Insurtech). The overall winning startup will be rewarded with €50,000 in cash and announced at the end of the last pitching session, during which entertainment of the dinner guests will be key.
