Pitch your idea in front of 30+ VCs

SEPTEMBER 2023

CYPRUS

SiGMA is throwing its weight behind up-and-coming startups, offering support to young businesses by connecting them to investors and mentors.

 

Following a very successful run, the next edition of SiGMA Pitch is back for another round. Over 100 startups will be selected to showcase their products and initiatives throughout the event. Each startup will have a small booth at SiGMA surrounded by top investors and mentors.

However, only the judges’ top ten will make it to the Pitch during the final leg of the summit, putting them in the running to potentially receive valuable equity investment. The investment prize pool will be awarded based on the startup deck, and at the discretion of the organisers, with prizes ranging in value of up to, but not exceeding 500,000 in equity investment.  Increase your chance of being one of the top 100 by providing a 3-minute video-introduction upon participation!
