LeWeb’14 Paris (December 9-11, 2014) announced last week that its internationally-renowned Startup Competition, recognized as being a launching pad for young companies, is open for entries.
New this year, LeWeb is introducing its inaugural Startup Tour in four European capitals known for having a particularly innovative startup community.
Starting on September 6 in Berlin, the Startup Tour will travel to Stockholm on September 30, before taking place in Paris in October and Barcelona in early November. The Startup Tour will be presented by Rodrigo Barros, HandsOn.TV. Startups from each of these cities and surrounding regions are invited to compete in local pitch contests, in front of a jury composed of local investors, entrepreneurs and media. They will also have the opportunity to network with the other attendees during an informal party following the pitch sessions. Startups will have 90 seconds to pitch and 5 minutes of Q&A with the jury.
Winning projects from Berlin, Stockholm, Paris and Barcelona will qualify as finalists for the main LeWeb’14 Startup Competition.
To be part of the Berlin stage of the Startup Tour, local startups are invited to submit their applications on YouNoodle before August 31st, for the opportunity of being selected to pitch.
