Start it @KBC has teamed up with the And& Summit & Festival in Leuven, to give our startups an even bigger stage, an wide international audience and the most possible opportunities. Expect to be dazzled by inspiring pitches and impressive keynote speeches!
Which startups are going to steal the show? That’s for you to decide! Vote now to get your favourite startups on the DemoDay stage.
If you have the ambition and the drive to grow,
If you develop innovative products and services,
If your idea has a growth margin and you are going for a sustainable company.
But if you are working on major social themes that have an impact on society, then you have an advantage: think of mobility, clean-tech, aging of the population, digitization, diversity ... and bank & insurance or telecom of course.
Every start-up and scale-up can securely submit the online application form by pushing the "apply now" button at any time. The application will be carefully evaluated if they match the selection criteria for the next Pitch Day. All applicants will receive feedback on their application whether or not they are invited to pitch.
The most Start it fit teams are invited to meet us in person and pitch their business on Pitch Day. Each presenter has 8 minutes to make her or his case: 3 minutes to present and 5 minutes for a Q & A in front of a board. The same day we give you a decision whether or not their team is selected to join the community with constructive feedback.
Soon after Pitch Day, the selected teams are invited at a welcome event complete with in depth information on the program, food, drinks & music. Meet the other startups pursuing their dreams - and meet your personal trainer who will guide you on your exciting journey at Start it @KBC.
