HOW IT WORKS
The pitch MARATHON consists of a series of five 45 minutes pitching sessions, each focussing on one topic. In each session 8-10 startups will be presenting their business model in 4 minutes. Between these pitching sessions, there will be networking breaks, where founders and investors can get to know each other. During the breaks investors have the possibility to invest virtual Pitch Marathon Cash into their favourite startups. The three startups with the most virtual cash become the grand prize winners.
The application is for free. Every for a pitch selected startup has to pay a small entry fee of 60€ per person with a maximum of three attendees per startup.
