Startups@Reeperbahn – Apply To Pitch In September

For the sixth time Reeperbahn Festival and Hamburg Startups are hosting the Startups@Reeperbahn Pitch. Five startups will be given the chance to present their businesses to over 450 investors, corporates, journalists, multiplicators and hand-picked VIP guests from Germany’s digital and media industry. The winning startup can look forward to take home the WELT-Mediaprize – a media budget totalling €150,000 as well as a trip abroad to SXSW 2019 in Austin, Texas.

Startups from all over Europe are invited to apply now! Applications will be accepted until 10 August. 

A committee of experts will select five startups in a special crowd selection procedure on 23 August. The five carefully selected finalists will then present their businesses at the Startups@Reeperbahn Pitch to interested investors and a top class jury, consisting of Scarlett Li (Vice President - China Media Capital), Dr. Cornel Wisskirchen (Managing Director, Regional Head Northern Germany, Deutsche Bank), Leah Hunter (Editor Fast Company & Forbes, Author) Jan Nimtz (Managing Director, Axel Springer Media for Equity) and Dr. Lars Janzik (CEO Vertical Media, Gründerszene) at Hamburg’s club Gruenspan on Wednesday, 19 September during Reeperbahn Festival.

As a delegate you can register for the Startups@Reeperbahn Pitch here using the promotion code DelegatesStartupsRBN (valid for the first 25 registrations).

Further, Startups@Reeperbahn will be offering a supporting programme for startups, investors and other interested parties. Find all detailed information on the Startups@Reeperbahn Pitch and the programme of the thematic strand Startups@Reeperbahn on our website.
