2023 Early Bird Offer for Startups

Want to make the most out of your >>venture>> startup competition application? Here's an offer you can't refuse.

Our Early Bird Offer is back by popular demand! Submit your application early and you're in the running to win mentorship from the >>venture>> network.

Any startup that uploads their startup plan onto by February 2, 2023 (that’s 1 month before the official deadline) will automatically get a chance to be amongst the 20 selected startups who will win access to >>venture>>'s mentorship program with our industry experts!

Our mentorship program is normally reserved only for our Finalists. However, we’re opening it up to an additional 20 startups outside of our Finalists.

Sounds great, right? But we’re sure you’re wondering what the fine print is. Fair enough, you’re an entrepreneur! Let’s get into it:

  • By registering and uploading your startup plan by February 2, 2023, you are automatically included in the selection process to win access to our mentorship program.

  • If you upload your startup plan by February 2, 2023, you can still modify it after the Early Bird Offer deadline. You have until March 2, 2023 (the official deadline), to submit the final version of your application.

  • The 20 winners will be selected by the >>venture>> team and select jury members on the basis of the following criteria: Innovation, Market, Technology/Product, Business Model, and Team. These criteria are no different from the major evaluation points for the competition.

  • To learn more about our evaluation criteria, check out our downloadable playbook.

  • Only startups who don’t qualify as a Finalist will be considered for the Early Bird Offer because as a Finalist, you will already receive mentorship as a prize.

Now it’s up to you. As they say, the early bird gets the worm! Polish up your pitch deck and register on to upload your business case.

Early Bird Offer deadline: February 2, 2023, 23h59.

2023 Application Deadline: March 2, 2023, 23h59.
