The New StartupDorf Unicorn Pitch Series starts in May

The StartupDorf Unicorn Pitch Series

The Düsseldorf startup pitch competition enters its fourth year. In its fourth consecutive year, the StartupDorf e.V. Unicorn Pitches will continue with four events spread throughout the year. In May, July, September, and November, digital startups from all over Germany, with a special focus on NRW, will compete in Düsseldorf for a spot in the annual pitch finale.

The fourth Pitch Competition Series of NRW’s oldest startup association kicks off this year on May 15th. Up to four startups, younger than 3 years, will have the chance to pitch their innovative digital products to an audience, aiming to garner the most votes with their presentations.

During the competition, founders have 5 minutes to present their startups, followed by a 5-minute Q&A round to prove themselves again.

The winner will receive the Unicorn Trophy, StartupDorf e.V. mentoring, and will qualify for the Unicorn Pitch Grand Final in spring 2025.

Startups can still apply online to participate. Info & registration via the following link:

Background on Unicorn Pitch

“Because it’s important to pitch well in front of investors and customers, founders should definitely practice this and ideally receive valuable feedback from members of the startup scene,” says Hanns Tappen, Co-Founder & Chairman of StartupDorf e.V.

This idea of promoting innovation and providing a platform for startups was the impetus for developing what is now the StartupDorf Unicorn Pitch. The pitch competition has since matured into a highlight of the event calendar, culminating each year in the Grand Final. A look back at the last Grand Final, including the winning startup, can be reached via the following link:

Qualification rounds on May 15, July 3, September 4, and November 6, 2024 Tickets can be reserved online 3 weeks before the event:
