The pitches start at 10:30AM and last until 6:30PM. Please make sure to arrive at the Pirate Summit one hour prior to your slot and be in front of the pitch-stage (Crows nest) ten minutes before you’re scheduled. Please understand that times can’t be changed concerning personal advantages.
The pitching rules (please read them carefully):
- Time on stage: You have 3 minutes (180 secs) to pitch and 1,5 minutes (90 seconds) for Q&A afterwards – the same timing some of you are used to from Pirate Summit Global.
- Pitch deck format & deadline: Accepted format is PDF, no PPT(x), Keynote etc.. The absolute deadline for sending your deck is Thursday, Sept. 1st, 11:59PM (CET). If we don’t receive it until then, we have to disqualify you from pitching unfortunately. Here is a good example of how a proper pitch deck could look like.
- Hardware & tools: You won’t need to bring your own laptop or a presenter on stage. Your deck will be ready and tested on our hardware.
- The judges: Up to four jurors will judge each pitch session (9-10 Startups per session) – all of them are actively looking for hot deals and are investing from seed to series A (incl. follow-ups). Please keep your answers in the Q&A session as precise & short as possible.
Your overall performance will be evaluated on these criteria:
- Business Model
Once you’re done on stage, you’ll commence with 30-minute mentoring sessions from successful entrepreneurs, investors and internationally known experts.
We will send out a last minute briefing prior to the event, including a map of the venue everything else you need to know. Make sure to be preparrred!
