South Summit Startup competition has already become a benchmark for Innovation which brings together the 100 most innovative startups. Any Startup in the ecosystem, if having a promising idea and team behind, will surely be found in our pitching sessions. South Summit is undoubtedly a seal of quality recognizable by every agent related to the entrepreneurial environment.
South Summit Fund was born with the aim of investing 6 million euros annually in the best startups among the 100 finalists of our Startup Competition.
Our 100 finalists will pitch in one of the different sessions in which the Startup Competition is divided. The startup with the highest score within each group will go on to the Final Round and compete against the others to become the Winner of South Summit.
Each of our startups finalists will get 3 free tickets for their team members. The tickets do not only give access to key areas such as the marketplace or our meeting rooms, but also to the pitching stages.
You will have access to a special discount on the purchase of a Demo Stand at the South Summit Marketplace - the main area of our venue. This will help increase your visibility and provide you with a comfortable space for meetings with our partners and/or investors.
South Summit will provide each of our 100 Finalists with an agenda of 1:1 meetings with corporates and investors of their interest that will take place during the three days of South Summit.
Our 100 Finalists will receive our books, which contain essential information of the key players who attend South Summit seeking for business. Knowing what top attendees are looking for, gives you great advantage when approaching them and presenting your project.
