More on the concept and the event
The concept of the Pitch & Present serves the interest of three main parties: the start ups, the Venture Capitals, and of course our dear student community.
Fast-growing early- to mid-stage startups pitch their business ideas towards top-tier VC jury and engage in interactive Q&As, students included.
Facilitating students to assist, learn and relate from these exchanges.
