Pitch Your Start-up puts talented entrepreneurs with great ideas in the spotlight. The competition was launched five years ago by Docler Holding in close collaboration with Luxinnovation to bring together local and international players, foster innovative ideas and showcase Luxembourg’s start-up scene at the international level. It takes place at ICT Spring, an annual tech summit dedicated to expanding networks for decision makers in IT, finance, banking and the web, as well as marketers, investors, entrepreneurs, innovation managers, startups, researchers and venture capitalists across Europe.

3 minutes & 33 seconds to pitch

60 start-ups will be offered the opportunity to pitch on 21 May. Each will have a pitching slot of 3 minutes and 33 seconds, followed by 2 minutes of questions and answers, to convince the jury composed of seasoned international experts. As in previous years, the competition will be open to start-ups that have an average turnover of less than €500,000 and a headcount of up to 15 people.

Four categories

In order to be eligible, start-ups must be active in one of the following fields:

  • Fintech & regtech: start-ups whose primary technology aims to help established financial systems improve their operations and/or functionality – or to flat out disrupt them
  • Artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data: start-ups whose primary technology uses artificial intelligence and/or machine learning, particularly in relation to big data, to improve an element of status quo or outright disrupt it
