Call for cleantech startups to pitch at Ecosummit London 2013
We call all cleantech startups in Europe to pitch at Ecosummit London 2013 on 15-16 October at the Crystal, the urban sustainability HQ of Siemens in the Docklands. ECO13 London is our 6th international cleantech conference and brings together Europe’s leading startups, VCs and corporates to accelerate smart green innovation. The theme of ECO13 London is Smart Green City. The best 5 startups, that never pitched at Ecosummit before, win a free 8-minute pitch on the Ecosummit stage and in front of the Ecosummit TV cameras. If you do not win but qualify for a pitch, we invite you to buy a startup ticket to pitch (50% of current ticket price). Please apply by creating a profile on Ecosummit Market and sending us your investor presentation as soon as possible. All applications are processed on a first come, first serve basis. Get ready for your cable car pitch and join us at ECO13 London.
All smart green startups that have reached significant milestones and look for funding and publicity are invited to apply for an 8-minute investor pitch. If you are not among the 5 winners of a free pitch slot, we ask qualifying startups to buy a startup ticket for the speaker for which we will send you a 50% ticket discount code valid for the current ticket price. We will select early and late stage startups that can prove quality with regard to management team, technology, business model, market potential and business plan execution. If you are interested in pitching, we kindly ask you to create a startup profile on Ecosummit Market and email us your investor presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are considered on a first come, first serve basis. Please note that we retain the right to close the application by the time our agenda is full and all speaker slots are taken. Therefore, we recommend to apply as soon as possible to increase your chances. If we select you, you should also get ready for your cable car pitch.
Investor Pitch Application Guideline
To make our selection process easier, we kindly ask you to send us a 10-slide investor presentation that we keep confidential. Please email your investor presentation to email@example.com.
Your ECO13 investor pitch presentation should have the following structure:
- Company (location, employees, funding, revenues, investors, partners, customers)
- Market (market description, market size)
- Product (problem, solution, value proposition, USP)
- Technology (overview, patent situation)
- Competition (main direct competitors)
- Team (founders, management team, track record)
- Business Case (5-year summary)
- New Funding (capital to be raised, use of funds)
If you are selected, it is highly recommended that you practice your pitch and timing as much as possible. We will also provide you with a speaker manual with useful tips, e.g. using the speaker display and speaker clock in front of you and looking at the audience and Ecosummit TV cameras at all times. Please note that all investor pitches will be published on our YouTube channel Ecosummit TV which has received over 65.000 video views so far. Therefore, only public information should be included during the live presentation.
