HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

STARTUPS


I WANT TO PARTICIPATE AS A STARTUP. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

If you would like to participate as a startup, please check out the ticket options here. There are on-site (in Wrocław) and online (in Hopin) options available. All ticket types give you access to the event and matchmaking app, and there are additional benefits available.

I HAVE TECHNICAL ISSUES WITH THE APPLICATION FORM / MATCHMAKING / BUYING A TICKET. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

If there are any technical issues with your matchmaking account, application form, or tickets, please contact us at cs@wolvessummit.com

You can direct all other questions about participating as a startup to startups@wolvessummit.com.

We will communicate all the important information to the email address you used in the application for the ticket/Great Pitch Contest. We strongly encourage you to put your business email address (with your company name as a domain, i.e. not a Gmail one) as a point of contact for us. This way, it will be easier for our Startup team to resolve any arising issues if there will be some. Please note that it’s not possible to change your email address to a different one once you submit it to us. All the communication from the Wolves Team will be coming to the email address you submitted initially.

I WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GREAT PITCH CONTEST. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

If you would like to be considered as a participant at the Great Pitch Contest, you need to buy a startup ticket here. If you would like to have a guaranteed pitching place, there are Startup Online Premium and Startup Premium + Hybrid Packages. The Startup Online Package only gives you an opportunity to apply for the pitching contest.

Once we receive your submission, we will check your pitch deck, and if you are selected by our Startup team, we will inform you by email. Then you will need to confirm your participation and the time slot of your pitch to us - you need to do it by replying to the email with information about pitching from startups@wolvessummit.com.

CAN I TEST MY CONNECTION BEFORE THE ONLINE PITCHING?

There is a possibility of testing your connection & presentation at StreamYard with our technical support team a week before the pitching competition. You will get information about the day and time of the testing by email. In case you don’t see the e-mail, you can request a rehearsal by sending an e-mail to startups@wolvessummit.com

WHAT ARE THE RULES OF THE PITCHING CONTEST?

At the Great Pitch Contest, as a pitching startup, you will have 3 minutes for presenting your project and 4 minutes for questions from the Jury.

If you don’t join (or connect) on time for your pitching slot, you will lose your place, and we will have to reassign it to someone else. 

The Jury evaluates each startup by criteria: team, product, its potential, the competence of the team, and investment readiness.

8 startups from the Semifinals will be qualified for the Finals. If you get to the Finals, you will be pitching once again in front of the Great Pitch Contest’s Final Jury on October 21st at the Main Stage on the Hopin.to platform.

WHO IS THE JURY?

The Jury consists of experienced investors from VCs from Europe and beyond, C-level executives from the biggest corporations in Europe and the US, and representatives from the biggest startup communities from all over the world. The Jury is different for each pitching slot, usually, it’s 3-4 members.
