A jury of industry experts selected the top 50 startups which will have the chance to pitch at Investors Day (October 28) to renowned investors from YC, 500 Startups to Accel and Sequoia. The best 8 of these 50 startups will make it to the finals and the main stage at Pioneers Festival. On Festival Day 2 (October 30) they will pitch to the final jury, all 2,500 festival participants and more than 60,000 live stream viewers. The final jury (previously: Sequoia, 500, Bolt, Haxlr8r, ….) selects the winner of this year’s Pioneers Challenge. The winner is rewarded with Grand Prize: Partner Meetings at Y Combinator, Techstars and Lemnos Labs AND $50k seed investment by SpeedInvest and Austrian Startup Award by AUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA.
Just a reminder – last year’s winner was Bellabeat, a startup also based in Croatia! We hope this year Agrivi could be the Pioneers Festival success story and Bellabeat’s successor! :)
