A startup pitch competition over a live London-Berlin link
This Week in Startups is the flagship show of the This Week In network.
The event will consist of 4-6 high quality elevator pitches from new companies and entrepreneurs. Those pitches and the business ideas are rated by the audience in a quickfire voting round.
In the spirit of the Euros, this event will see the cream of the newest British startups coming out of Europe’s hottest tech startup scene – London, taking on the might of the growing and increasingly sucessful German tech scene in Berlin.
That’s right, it’s England v Germany – LIVE on This Week in Startups.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the format (where have you been?): 6 Companies will take part in a preliminary pitching round, consisting of 3 minute pitch and upto 5 minute Q&A with the meetup audience. Apply here to take part with your hot new startup. The Audience then votes, based on two criteria – 1) The Pitch / Presentation 2) The Business Idea.
The top 3 companies from each Country then pitch to Jason and Tyler in the studio, live on This Week in Startups, with the overall winners being awarded by our hosts.
Previous winners and runners up have been invited out to San Francisco to take part in the popular and ever more influential Launch Conference, held in March.
