AI & Blockchain Summit startup competition launches an open call for tech startups, aiming to raise capital and be supported by the leading international market players.
InnMind, the first global business ecosystem for the innovation-driven community, becomes a host for AI & Blockchain Summit, which will take place at Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, 19-21 November 2019. One of the most anticipated programs for startups is an official Startup Competition, that will boost young companies to become the industry’s “sharks.”
What is the competition about, and what are the advantages?
Amongst the jury, participants will be able to find the top leading investors and funds from the US and Europe, such as FinBit Capital, Draper University and VC, and others, meaning that all eyes are going to be focused exclusively on the startups. InnMind launches its investment engine with syndicated deals and will be evaluating the startups for being invested during the competition. This will give the founders of promising tech startups a real chance to personally meet the most active venture capitalists from Europe and the USA and make a successful investment round.
Sometimes the journey is far more critical that a destination. That is why competing amongst the best technological startups in the international area is already a triumph! Every competitor will be “on the radar” of the top European accelerators, which are also the partners of InnMind!
What’s the prize?
One of the grand prizes organized by Draper University is a partial scholarship of $2000 for each startup! Apart from that, the winner will receive a fundraising round using the InnMind investment engine! Moreover, the leading participants should expect investments from VCs and investors, partners of the AI & Blockchain Competition, as well as additional mentoring and fundraising support from InnMind together with top industry experts from Tech Accelerators.
Not only that, each participant will get a fantastic experience of forming a part of the Startup Competition, but also have an opportunity to meet industry and business leaders, academics and politicians, investors and financial institutions, and other guests for a 3-day dedicated program. Competition participants will get direct access to potential strategic partners, industrial and public customers, and a real chance of business development acceleration. Therefore, it is an amazing opportunity for the establishment of long-term business partnerships with such industry giants like IBM, Bosch, and others, who have already confirmed their status of Summit’s official partners.
