Tahko Ski Lift Pitch 2020 is a thrilling, two-day pitch event that pairs start-ups with investors, in a ski lift chair, for a chance to win a grand prize of 20,000 €. It all happens around the stunning slopes and laid-back, après ski atmosphere of the Tahko Ski Resort in Finland – Talk about a captive audience!
This energising, face-to-face event presents start-ups and start-agains with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and establish relationships with business angels and venture capitalists as they share their disruptive value propositions, high-growth potential, and scalability goals – and of course their unquenchable appetite for success
The qualification rounds start in Piazza restaurant at 10 am. There will be 2-3 judges per round judging the pitches. Side events, matchmaking, roundtables. During the networking dinner at 7 pm, the battle pairs will be announced.
The day on the slopes. All startups will give a ski lift pitch on Thu 2.4! Two startups and one judge in the lift = a battle. Semifinals will also be held in the ski lift and the finals will be fought on the stage in Panorama Bar.
To the victor goes the 20K. You will enjoy the relaxed after ski feeling whilst networking with investors and event partners. The grand prize of 20,000 € still stands.
