Applications Open For TechChill Pitch Battle

As of today, seed round stage startups are invited to apply for Pitch Battle at TechChill. The Pitch Battle is one of the main events during the conference, and one of the best opportunities for new companies to showcase their idea on the main stage in front of an audience of 1000 people, including several global investors and international media representatives. The Pitch Battle, as well as the Pitch Academy, an intensive 1-day bootcamp for qualifying startups on the day before will be hosted by Startup Wise Guys, one of the leading startup accelerators in Europe.

Applications are open until January 15:


The 10 selected teams will be announced on January 19th.

10 best startups selected by a professional jury will get a chance to participate in Startup Wise Guys Pitch Academy, a one-day intensive bootcamp and mentoring sessions on how to improve the product and presentation on February 9th. At the end of the day, startups will participate in semi-finals, and a professional jury will decide on the five best teams to get on the main stage next day during TechChill Pitch Battle. The audience at the semi-finals on February 9 will include not only mentors and industry experts, but also more than 30 confirmed business angels from the Baltics looking for their next investment.

The five teams selected to take part in TechChill Pitch Battle on the main stage on February 10 will compete for the main prize – a fully paid trip to Silicon Valley, with a full agenda and meetings with selected investors – as well as several other prizes from TechChill supporters and the attention of business angels, investors, media and potential customers in the audience. The Pitch Battle has traditionally been an important part of the event and a good indication of future success. Previous winners at TechChill Pitch Battle such as, TrackDuck, Edurio, Nordigen have all grown to become successful startups and attracted several million in funding.

“In startup world, pitching is at the very heart of sales process and investor attraction. With our Pitch Academy we will get 10 startups better at that, so they can thrill the audience on the stage, but also significantly increase their chances of attracting team members, clients or investors in future,” says Cristobal Alonso, global CEO of Startup Wise Guys. The accelerator will also give a special prize to their favourite B2B startup – a “fast track” to semi-finals of next Startup Wise Guys program, to be taking place in spring of 2017, in Tallinn.
