The annual EU-Startups Summit is nearly upon us, and for the Pitch Competition the deadline for startups to apply is March 2.
Startups looking to compete should be in pre-seed or seed stage, not older than two years, should have raised no VC funding yet (or less than €500K) and have to be based in Europe.
EU-Startups.com’s annual flagship event showcases a selection of Europe’s hottest startups and come together to learn from some of the most successful European entrepreneurs of our time.
The one-day summit takes place April 24 at the Auditori AXA in Barcelona.
According to organizer and EU-Startups.com Founder and editor in chief Thomas Ohr, “During the EU-Startups Summit, we’re going to have an electrifying pitch competition with 15 pre-selected startup teams from all across Europe. Our goal is to showcase some of Europe’s best early-stage startups out there. The participating teams will get a lot of valuable feedback from an expert jury of well known investors. The winning startup will receive a prize package worth €50,000+ and will be prominently featured on EU-Startups.com.”
Those wishing to apply for the Pitch Competition and give a three-minute presentation in front of an excited audience of 750 people (investors, startup enthusiasts, and the media), can apply here.
In addition to the Pitch Competition, EU-Startups will bring 15+ investors on stage who will briefly introduce their investment firm and focus in front of the audience.

- Oscar Pierre, Founder and CEO at Glovo

The one-day event is an opportunity for networking, and a meeting point for aspiring entrepreneurs and investors who are aiming to build international tech companies.
