Do you have a Brilliant Business Idea?
Pitch at the EBF Conference and win!

Are you an inspiring entrepreneur? Have you founded your start-up less than three years ago? Then this is your chance to promote your idea in front of 600 students and business professionals!

After the success of the last few years, the start-up pitch competition will return to the EBF Conference 2018. During this competition, three student start-ups will be offered the chance to pitch their business idea in two minutes to the audience of the Conference Day. Subsequently, by voting though the EBF Conference app, the start-up with the most promising business idea will be determined and will win several prizes consisting of cash and advisory hours!

Prior to the EBF Conference 2018, on the 17th of September, Launch Café Groningen will host the Rabobank Start-up Pitch Kick Off Event,, in which all start-ups will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to the panel of judges. They will provide every participating start-up with useful advice and eventually choose the three start-ups that will pitch their idea at the EBF Conference.

Prior to the conference, the three selected start-ups will receive a pitch training and free access to Angel Island which both are sponsored by Founded in Groningen. Next to that, in preparing the finalists for the conference day, we will also provide them with public speaking webinar which will be delivered by Tara Phillips, a prominent TEDx Coach whose clients include the management team from Heineken, Deutsche Telekom & Bosch.

We are looking for start-ups that are younger than 3 years and founded by students. Please note that the main language of EBF Conference will be English.
