Start-ups need finance and customers. But are they willing to fight for it in a Boxing Ring? Inspiralia Group put twenty promising start-ups from twelve countries and different sectors to the test by organising a fierce pitching competition. Contestants were put under time pressure to pitch their business ideas in short battles to a world-class jury and a demanding public that voted for their favourites. The result was an engaging, fast-moving and intense event that crowned three winners, who will continue their fights at the world final in Berlin between 17th and 20th of June. There, contestants from 100 countries will get a chance to expose their businesses to create valuable relationships, focus on deal-making and get a shot at the available 10M€ venture fund that is awaiting the winners.
