*conVenture presents VenturePitch
We are testing a new format called "VenturePitch" for a future signature event hosted by VentureWaerft. It's based on the classic "Shark Tank / Die Höhle der Löwen / Løvens hule"  TV-show.
For this smaller version of the VenturePitch we will have 2 start-ups that will present their idea ("pitch"). They will get direct feedback from investors and experts from our region. We will use a tool for live voting and feedback from the audience a.k.a. potential customers.

We offer a pitch training including a video analysis for the start-ups from our Docks, held by Oliver Niebuhr (SDU). This analysis focuses on the powerful effects of using the right language. As there is a limited availability for these, please register with Marie in advance.
