Startup Pitch Contests 2022

The Global Inclusion Online Forum Startup Pitch Competition is one of the first startup pitches that offers a platform to early stage startups that are dealing with inclusion issues. Startups will have a chance to present their ideas to the representatives of specialized VCs and top inclusion professionals from around the world.

The participants in the Startup Competition will also be part of the Online Startup Expo, where they will be able to demonstrate their product to the GIOF attendees. For startup teams, this is also a great networking opportunity to connect with top industry representatives.

The winning package includes prizes from partners and organizers. It includes a free exhibitor package at GIOF 2022, mentorship sessions run by top industry professionals, extra networking opportunities, and other benefits.

The reputable jury will choose winners, who will receive the most visibility at the event’s pages and be awarded with special recognition and prizes. You can learn more about the previous editions of the competition and its winners here and here.
