Young companies that do not reach the final of the Startups@Reeperbahn Pitch will still have an opportunity to present themselves to investors on Pitch Day (September 19, 2018 from 1 pm to 5 pm). When applying, each start-up can indicate whether they wish to take part in the event. Sixteen companies that do not reach the final will still have an opportunity to pitch.
Pitch Day – four categories with four participants
The participating start-ups are bundled according to topic. However, the categories depend on the type of applicants. There are no concrete prizes on Pitch Day and the focus will be on competent feedback from investors and discussions afterwards. Applications for the Startups@Reeperbahn Pitch can be submitted until August 10. An expert board of trustees will select the five finalists on August 23.
Start-ups from all over Europe stand to win a media budget of EUR 150,000 from DIE WELT daily and a trip to the “South by Southwest Festival” at the Startups@Reeperbahn Pitch:https://www.hamburg-news.hamburg/en/media-it/travel-subsidy-sxsw-now-available-speakers-hamburg/ in Texas. For the sixth time, the private initiative Hamburg Startups invites young, innovative companies from all over Europe to present their ideas and business models on the Kiez. The Gruenspan music club is the venue for the event. After the Pitch Day, five start-ups take to the stage to win over the jury and the expert audience with their ideas.
