Are you a start-up, early stage company or entrepreneur designing a more connected world? Are you looking for funding and want to pitch your idea to an elite panel of industry leaders and potential investors?
This year CW is introducing a theme to the competition, Connecting the Digital World, in order to provide particular exposure to those start-ups innovating in the field of connectivity. This broad subject encourages applications from businesses positioned across any layer of the technology stack, from silicon to software. We look forward to seeing innovations that will enhance digital communication across any industry, whether mobility as a service, autonomous vehicles, manufacturing 4.0 or smart cities.
In addition to the traditional event style of formal presentations, Discovering Start-Ups offers a more dynamic form of 1-1, investor-entrepreneur networking. The Discovering Start-Ups 2018 Final will feature an Exhibition with judges rotating between start-up pitching stations and the opportunity of 1:1 follow-ups later in the day.
