European Venture Contest 2013

For the 9th consecutive year, the European Venture Contest (EVC) will uncover in 2013 the most qualified technology entrepreneurs seeking international venture capital. The EVC presents itself as a unique opportunity in today’s tough economy to get international exposure and secure funding, ultimately helping companies grow and generating employment.

Years of experience linking the right people together

Each year over 800 startups apply to the EVC via a dozen of regional or technology-focussed qualifiers to present their company, engage with top industry experts and network with potential investors. The contest element comes from the selection of the best quartile (Top 25%) at each of the qualifiers who continue to an end-of-year major event with more than 100 entrepreneurs and also 100+ venture investors. 120 finalists of this event will be reviewed by a top Selection Committee and the 25 best startups (9 ICT, 8 life sciences and 8 cleantech) are awarded.
