Pitching Competition

SECURE FUNDING FOR YOUR STARTUP

NewCo Accelerator proudly presents the Arctic15 Pitching competition! It’s time to REBOOT! The Pitching Competition returns with a new interactive approach! This is an exciting journey where the finals will be streamed online on our Deal Room platform in front of many investors. Take this opportunity to bounce back from the pandemic in style! Are you ready?

Why should you join?

This is your chance to get exposure to international angel investors, VCs and corporations. So take advantage of this opportunity to expand your network, build potential partnerships, gain media visibility and most importantly, secure funding for your startup. There will be multiple investment syndicates, so if you make it to the top 30, you still have a great chance of getting funded even without winning the competition!

The competition will focus on pre-seed to seed stage startups. Startups will be judged by a panel of international investors and experts. There will be three stages to the competition, the application period, public Top30 voting, and the final 15 pitching at the event. The winner will get exciting prizes that will be revealed later, but naturally an investment opportunity from an angel syndicate as the crown jewel!

Startups, join us for the Arctic15 Pitching Competition by NewCo Accelerator by submitting your pitch deck and answering a few questions and several multiple-choice questions in the application form: Simple as that!
