Business Presentation

Questions about the event

  • What do startups need to possess for selection?
    We’re particularly interested in FinTech and PropTech startups but are also open to other exciting ideas with growth potential. We’re looking for startups with a strong concept, a well-defined value proposition, and a business model that can scale. Whether you’re just starting or making progress, if you’re ready for growth, we’re excited to learn about your venture.
  • What benefits can founders expect from this event?
    Founders will meet global investors, get helpful advice, and connect with other entrepreneurs. If they need funding, they might find those interested in investing in them. They’ll also join a supportive community, access resources, and collaborate. Last but not least, we want to help founders boost their visibility in the industry, which could lead to media coverage and more chances to grow.
  • How does the selection process work?
    To begin, you’ll need to complete the application form, which includes submitting a video introduction. If your application progresses successfully, we’ll arrange a call to ask more questions. If all goes smoothly, we’ll schedule another conversation covering logistical details.
  • What can I expect from the pitch format?
    Each pitch presentation will last 10 minutes, allowing you to showcase your startup. Following the pitch, there will be a 10-minute Q&A session where you can address questions from the audience. For your convenience, we’ll provide you with a projector, screen, and microphone to facilitate your presentation.
  • Can I do my pitch virtually?
    While we plan to live stream parts of the event online, please note that the startup pitch sessions are meant to be in person.
