Online Competition

Period: October to December

In this phase of the competition, participants start launching their ventures and write on their One Pager as an Entrepreneur. On the platform, specific questions will guide them through the development of this initial business plan. If Entrepreneurs feel they need some help, they can always ask others to join their team (Talents).

The answers written, will be the first point of contact with the Investors. The role of the Investors is to scan the different business plans, give the teams their specific feedback, and reward good ideas with virtual investments. All anonymous of course. Successful ventures that manage to get the highest share price will go to a Jury, battling for a place in the Final Event. By making well thought-out investment decisions, Investors can gain profit. This profit will determine their place in the Investor Ranking.

To provide additional support, Battle of Talents organizes also offline events (like a CEO Café and a Pitch Event). At these events, our participants can appeal to dedicated coaches to further enrich their idea, business plan and investment strategy.
