get ready to compete!
Founders Fights @ ISPO Brandnew 2023
The Founders Fight Night - the toughest startup pitching competition in the universe!
Why is the competition tough? Because no distractions will help the startups - no screen, no slides, nothing.
That's right - every participating startup faces an equal opponent and only one can win. Battle rap as a pitch event! Of course, the main focus is on having fun for participants and involving the audience.
In this interactive format, the audience is actively involved in deciding who wins the round because, as in real start-up life, only one person is ever right - the market!
The expert jury asks tough "Haymaker questions" in the rounds and tries to influence the market.
The sessions will conclude in a spectacular finale event on the 29th of November and present:
Founders Fight Champion.
No pitch event engages the audience as much as the Founders Fight Night.
