The Podim Pitching Competition turns the spotlight on the most ambitious startups from the CEE region. Apply to take over the main stage in front of hundreds of visitors, among them the potential partners, talent, and highly motivated investors who are also the jury to pick the best startups. You’ll also receive invaluable feedback and invitations to exclusive events with the most relevant people who can help your business grow. The winner will receive extensive attention from investors, potential business partners, and talent, as well as valuable media coverage.
Compete in front of all participants
The competition starts with pre-qualification rounds of applied startups at Demo Day on Monday. The startups with the best pitches and potential continue the competition at the Pitching Competition semifinal on the first day of the conference, and the five best compete at the main stage event in front of all visitors. The award ceremony for announcing the winner will be the culmination of Podim. You can apply to the Podim Pitching Competition while filling out your startup application.
