From April, 20th to April 22nd – Pitch session (2 per day) : open to all

Project owners will present their innovative idea in front of a panel of experts and will get critical feedback for their development. Listen to those professionals, debating the last innovative trends and the future of entrepreneurship throughout Watch Parties. In addition, take part in the discussion and share your opinion live. The finalists will be selected in two different ways :

One session will take place each day between 11.30 and 13.00 and the other between 16.00 and 17.30. The precise themes of each session remain to be determined according to the projects that will apply.

  • A jury of experts will select 2 projects based on their quality.
  • The public will select 2 projects by engaging with the videos posted on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages after the Watch Parties. Each video gets a score measuring the public engagement on it. A classification will be available here, and updated every day for the duration of the contest. The interactions will be gathered from the 23th to the 28th of April on our Facebook page and LinkedIn. And the finales will take place on the 29th of April.
