Due to the current health situation, the semi-finals and Grand Finale of Pitch Your Startup competition will take place during the international tech conference, ICT Spring Europe, respectively on September 15th & 16th, 2020 at the European Convention Center Luxembourg.
The semi-finals of Pitch Your Startup competition will take place on September 15th, 2020, in the frame of ICT Spring Europe. In total, 36 startups will pitch in front of a jury in attempt to win a place in the Grand Finale. As a reminder, the categories in the competition are:
- AI, Machine Learning & Big Data: a startup using artificial intelligence, machine learning, particularly in relation with Big Data to improve an element of the status quo or outright disrupt it.
- Cybersecurity: a startup whose primary technology improves or creates new security technology or outright disrupts the sector.
- Supply Chain: a startup who aims to help established supply chain and/or logistics actors in developing faster, better, cheaper, more efficient/sustainable service for their client.
Exceptionally this year, the AR, VR & 3D Modelling, Digital Marketing and Event Tech categories will not be part of the 2020 edition.
The Grand Finale of this season’s Pitch Your Startup, that will be held the second day of the global tech conference, on September 16th, 2020, will bring together the 9 finalists, who will pitch for 3min33 in front of a jury composed of seasoned professionals. The winners of the AI, Machine Learning & Big Data, Cybersecurity and Supply Chain categories will therefore be joined by the winning startups which participated to Human Capital Europe (in November 2019) and European Finance Summit (in March 2020) sessions. Those startups are UPCITI (Smart Mobility category), Hunteed (HR Tech), Sikoba (Fintech), Insquary (Regtech) and Descartes Underwriting (Insurtech). The overall wining startup will be rewarded with €50,000 in cash.
