Waltz with Investors?

How does it sound to pitch your start up on the red velvet in a Vienna Ballroom?

Last year we visited  a quite intriguing conference in Vienna called Pioneers. Its been going for few years and has established it self as one of the leading Central European events for Start ups.
What really impressed us in 2014, besides the beautiful venue its held, was the quality of the pitches and start ups that got presented. The thickness of the wallets in the panel reviewing them wasn’t a drawback either. Long story short, its quite an opportunity for getting attention outside of scandinavia.

It is closing in on this years conference and the deadline for start ups that wish to present at the event is already on the 1st of September.
This year they also added a few more rewards to those who win the major pitching competition (the Pioneers Challenge 2014).

Among other things, the winner can pocket a $50k seed investment from SpeedInvest and a complete travel package to meet VCs in Silicon Valley and London.
