Reminder: 2 European Startup Contests are open for applications

Hi,

just a brief reminder: Currently, there are two very interesting European startup contests open for application.

InnoPitch is a competition for startups who have been established in the EU for less than 18 months to apply for an opportunity to present their idea to innovation experts. Participation is completely free and the 6 best startups will be invited to Brussels on 1-3 July for the final at Unconvention 2015. Apply here until end of May: http://unconvention.e...­

The top 12 startups will be put through an intense mentoring workshop with the Europe’s top mentor and seed investor Carlos Eduardo Espinal from Seedcamp, nominated by the European Commission as a pan-European Startup leader. The best 6 from that group will get an opportunity to pitch their startup on the Unconvention 2015 stage in front of an audience of innovators. They will get free travel, accommodation and VIP passes for Unconvention 2015. In addition to that, they will receive direct feedback from InnoPitch judges - President and COO of Seedrs Carlos Silva, co-founder and president of Mendeley Jan Reichelt, and aforementioned Carlos Eduardo Espinal.

The winner of the InnoPitch will become the European Young Innovator 2015, as well as receiving an invitation for EYIF’s InnoTour US, a tour across the US innovation centers in August 2015. Participants will be offered accommodation and domestic flights during the entire tour.

The second startup contest which is already running is Idea Challenge - a pan-European startup contest, launched in 2014 in order to support innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe. Last year in total 790 European startups applied in 8 categories. 24 winning teams were awarded 640,000 Euro. Teams receiving this money do not loose any equity.

EIT ICT Labs is again looking for the brightest entrepreneurs in Europe. Maren Lesche from the organizers team, will present Idea Challenge and answer all your questions at our Meetup on the 5th of June. If you have not done a reservation for this Meetup, yet - please do it know.

If you already want to find out if you should participate at Idea Challenge, please have a look: ­http://ideachallenge....­

Hope to see you next week!
