Few notes from our crew before applying:

In the application, we ask you to upload a pitch video (max. 5 minutes long). This video is used only by the *ship Startup Coordinators to go through all applications and invite the most suitable teams to *ship Startup Festival. 

As a tip, the we recommend having at least the following information included in your application pitch:

  • Startup introduction
  • The problem
  • The solution
  • Value proposition
  • Business model
  • Roadmap

In this application pitch, it is not mandatory to pitch directly to the camera. You can do a slideshow presentation and have your own webcam showing on the edge of the screen, for example. Nevertheless, the better the pitch the better are your changes to be selected in *ship 2021! 

Please make sure the lighting, sound, etc. are working on the video before submitting the application, and please make sure that the privacy settings on the folder/file are correct. 

All teams have the full ownership for their work (e.g. code graphics, presentation, business idea) the team members own all contributions made by said team. Read more from IPRs from here and here.
