How does the Pitch Marathon work?

During the pitch MARATHON sessions each startup will have 4 minutes to present its idea and product to gain investors’ interest.
During the multiple networking breaks, founders have the chance to approach investors and convince them about their product. Investors have the opportunity to provide feedback to the founders and reward their favourite startups with virtual Pitch Marathon Cash.
The startups with the most virtual cash at the end of the event will be rewarded.
