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 Ecosummit TV which has received over 50.000 video views so far. Therefore, only public information should be included during the live presentation.
If you haven’t been to our previous conferences, you should watch a few of our favourite startup pitches on Ecosummit TV: Taavi Madiberk (Skeleton Technologies), Karl Kolmsee (Smart Hydro Power), Tom Schulz (Entelios), Peter Krebs (Sefaira) and Stefan Roest (Eternal Sun).
Moreover, if you are a new startup interested in launching at ECO13 Berlin to take advantage of the high-profile investor and media audience, please take a look at our sponsor opportunities and get in touch with us.
