On 2 May, European cybersecurity start-ups will have the opportunity to present their company and ideas to an audience and a jury of European investors, entrepreneurs, scientists and other stakeholders. The fully digital eurobits ECSO Start Up Pitch 2022 is the perfect stage to make your own company internationally known and to find new partners.
Willi Mannheims, Katharina Frie (both eCapital), Rainer Baumgart (eurobits), Jannis Stemmann (Bosch CyberCompare), Silke Bargstädt-Franke (Federal Agency for Security in Information Technology), Ulrich Seldeslachts (LSEC and ECSO, among others), Carlos Moreira da Silva (Sonae IM) and Christof Paar (Max Planck Institute for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection) have already been appointed as jury members.
The actual pitch event will take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. CET and will be streamed live via Youtube. Each pitch should last 7 minutes, followed by 3 minutes for Q&A.
From 5.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m., investors and start-ups can meet in one-to-one meetings, which are of course not open to the public.
If you would like to take part in the pitch download the application form, fill it out and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will consider all complete applications received by Noon on 11 April (Monday). After close scrutiny by our high-ranking jury, you will be given the opportunity to pitch. All startups are eligible to apply – whether in the seed phase or looking for Series B funding or business partnerships.
A note in advance: the jury will look at criteria such as the team, management experience, market potential, business model clarity or presentation quality during the pitch.
