Submissions for the 2022 edition are now open
October is back!
The time for cozy sweaters, autumn hikes and pumpkin-flavored everything has arrived. It’s also the time to start thinking about how you can get the necessary support your startup needs.
Now, we know it’s tough in the beginning. Lots of things are vying for your attention as you’re founding a company and you have to be many things at once. We get it. That’s why we’ve designed our competition to meet you where you’re at.
For starters, we’re a pure competition. We’re not an accelerator or incubator so we’re not time intensive. At >>venture>>, we’re looking for INNOVATIVE early-stage startups based in Switzerland. We want to give your startup a boost by connecting you to the right people (we’ve got an incredible network) and setting you up with some non-dilutive cash (up to CHF 150,000). No strings attached.
To join, get your stellar idea on paper and put together your business case. Submit it under one of the following categories: Finance & Insurance, Health & Nutrition, ICT, Industrials & Engineering, or Retail & Consumer Services, for review by our panel of industry experts. You’ll get written feedback, and you might just make it into the top 10 of your vertical.
When you make it as a finalist, you’ll have access to our mentors and optional pitch training sessions. You’ll then go on to pitch live in front of our jury of experts for a chance to be ranked amongst the top 3 winners.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. First things first- get your idea down on paper. Need some advice? Check out our e-book on what makes a winning business case and what our jurors are looking for. Also, don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter to find out about our upcoming events.
Ah- one more thing. Do you have what it takes to venture forward with us?
