is a startup accelerator program and live pitch event established in 2014. Present Your Startup aims to make connections between startups, investors & corporates.
Are you a startup entrepreneur with an innovative idea or product? Do you have a brilliant idea, that the world must know? Would you like to have professional support building your business? Would you like to scale your business? Looking for funding? In short, would you like to get to the next level? Apply now for Present Your Startup!
All applicants are automatically selected to attend our Network & Selection Day(s) in the region for which you apply. During those days, the startups will be selected for our accelerator program: the Prepare Your Startup Academy, that will be organised 3 times this year. This is an accelerator program of four theme days during which you will be fully prepared for your first (or second) 'financial close'. The Academy is a perfect way for the startup entrepreneurs to prepare themselves to pitch at the regional Pitch Day, and for us it is the perfect opportunity to get to know the startups and the entrepreneurs. The Academy is thus an important element of our selection process.
After the Prepare Your Startup Academy you will pitch (if selected) your business plan during the regional Pitch Day (Quarter Final). The winners of the different regional Pitch Days will be pitching at the semi-finals in Amsterdam and the 5 best startups will eventually be given the opportunity to pitch at the big final live Pitch Event in November.
