Oslo Innovation Week (OIW) 100 Pitches is a pitching contest connecting the most promising seed-stage startups from all over the world, with investors, VC’s, corporates and partners. Apply now to compete for the prize pool of more than 30,000 euros.
Strongly aligned with the OIW core principles, all startups must showcase real business solutions to at least one of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. There are 5 different tracks to participate in Smart Cities, Equality, Ocean, Health and Energy.
“The Netflix for pitches”
For the first time, the event will be fully digital. The top 100 video pitches will be made available for all to see ahead of the event, similar to a “Netflix for Pitches”. This way investors and VC’s can check out the top 100 startups, divided by this year’s five tracks. In addition, the startups will get their own page and URL to share with potential investors and stakeholders.
OIW pitches previous winners:
- 2019: Evoy – designs, develops and delivers 100% electric propulsion systems for boats
- 2018: Manolin – builds data on aquaculture farm activity
- 2017: Chooose – builds digital tool to make climate action part of our life
How do I apply?
To apply, all startups must submit a video pitch (max 3 min) by 31 August. Wondering about the video quality? Anything goes. You can record your voice over your slides, and that’s great! The startup is what matters at OIW 100 Pitches, not your video skills.
Based on the video pitches, a jury will select 3 companies from 5 different tracks. The 15 companies are invited to present live, through an in-depth dialogue with the jury. This means you can pitch from all over the world, wherever you are based.
The live pitch session will be Tuesday 22 September, competing for a prize pool of €30K. The track winners will be announced at DNB NXT on Wednesday 23 September.
What are you waiting for? Apply here no later than 31 August!
