Armenian startups can participate in TechChill startup pitch competition

Armenian startups are welcome to apply for the Fifty Founders Battle at TechChill to be held on February 8-9, Riga.

The organizing team informed that the application is open for seed and early stage startups. The winner will receive EUR 10 000 in cash - no equity and no strings attached.  

The application form is available here. The deadline is January 7.

The competition is hosted in partnership with Startup Wise Guys, the leading B2B, SaaS startup accelerator in Europe.

TechChill noted that they are reinventing the pitch battle format this year. Previously, only top 5 finalists had the opportunity to get to pitch on the big stage, while this year 50 of the most promising startups will have direct access to an audience of international VCs, business angels, accelerators, media and of course, the official jury.

The finalists will still take the main stage to an audience of 2000 people and compete for the main prize.

Startup Wise Guys mentor and expert team will be leading the selection process, working together with TechChill community partners.

The event in February will host representatives from around 100 venture capital firms, corporate VCs, business angels and accelerators, including Startup Sauna, Startup Wise Guys, Index Ventures, Cavalry Ventures, InReach Ventures, Vertical VC, 500 Startups, Hoxton Ventures, Techstars, StartupBootcamp IOT, Hardware Club, Change Ventures, EstBan, Karma Ventures, EBRD, LauncHub, NordicBan, Open Ocean, Superhero Capital.
