What is it?
The Startup Pitch Competition at #LIS brings together innovative early-stage startups for a three minute pitch on stage. Within these three minutes, founders go head to head for recognition, fame, rock & roll and a couple of awards.
The Competition is open to any startup attending the Lisbon Investment Summit. The top 12 startups that apply will get to present in front of experienced investors and hundreds of attendees, battling it out for a chance to be crowned “Winner of The Competition 2018“.
The LIS Pitch Competition 2018 was announced alongside the rules and what the winner is taking home. The rules are simple, it’s a 3 minute pitch and 5 minutes of Q&A, the winner is taking home 1000€ a courtesy of Beta-i, plus two tickets for SingularityU Summit and access to the program Grow by José de Mello Group.
Despite this being no small thing it’s important to say that pitching in front of startup-hungry investors comes with a whole lot of perks, like joining Techstars Paris, for example. Proof of that is Snapswap. They learned about the Pitch Competition when they were at SIBS Pay Forward and since they were actively exploring the Portuguese market at the time they thought it would be a great platform to showcase their solution.
Besides attracting a lot of interest during their pitch they also had a booth and ended up making valuable contacts with Portuguese financial institutions.
Applications close on April 30 and we’re waiting for yours. Like we’ll always be waiting for Snapswap return with open arms.
