The Benelux’ most promising startups
More than 100 companies have applied for a chance to pitch at the 14th of the edition Venture Forum. A Selection Committee of prominent investors has been responsible to thoroughly assess all applications and has handpicked the 46 most promising entrepreneurs to present at the event. Evaluation was based on business potential, team structure, competitive position, product and technology strength as well as investment potential. In order to properly prepare for their investment pitch, selected companies are able to get expert coaching at a "Dry-Run", polishing their presentation to perfection with the help of seasoned business coaches. Winners of the Benelux Venture Forum, the top 25% of the presenting companies, will receive a guaranteed place at the European Venture Summit, the grand finale of the annual European Venture Contest that takes place in December 2014.
