The PwC Pitchbattle 2019 – Q-Summit


The PwC Pitchbattle 2019

April 24th 2019 at the University of Mannheim

It’s your chance: The Q-Summit Pitch-Battle provides young founders with the chance to pitch their idea to a large audience and be evaluated by our experienced judges that will provide feedback and select a winner.

Six promising startups showcase their business models and growth strategies in front of the conference audience. They have three minutes time for their pitch and afterwards there is a two minutes Q&A slot conducted by the jury of experts. Time is restricted precisely to provide the same chances to every candidate. In the end, the winners are determined partly by an audience voting and partly by the choice of the jury. Several great prizes are awaiting the winning startup, as well as constructive feedback by the jury members.

The Social Pitch Contest 2019

In addition to the Pitch-Battle, Q hosts another exciting Pitch Contest which is solely accessible for social startups. As social responsibility is one of the Q key topics, the conference fosters entrepreneurs who focus on charitable and sustainable business models.
