The EBS Symposium is one of Europe’s largest and most prestigious student-run business conferences.

Over the course of three days, the EBS Symposium addresses current topics that are relevant to business and politics.

Part of the symposium will also be a pitch-battle. Startups can take part if they are..

- in the pre-seed phase
- working on an innovative idea that will change the world after the pandemic
- in need of 5.000€ to help fund your venture
- interested in a founder’s package by our main sponsor Futury
- willing to stand up for your idea and to convince the jury and the audience that you have the potential to make the world a better place

You will have 5 Minutes time to convince four jury members, who are experts in the field of start-ups and venture capital, as well as the audience. The Pitches will take place on our studio stage in the newly built auditorium. Your venture should be pre-seed and does not have to be a founded company yet, but you should have something to show for yourself already. This means that first customers or a prototype would be a plus.

Upload your pitch deck and a short video, in which can be seen who’s behind the idea and which explains what you would use the prize for. More info on https://ebs-symposium.eu/startup-pitches/

Goethe Uni Frankfurt hosts an exclusive award in cooperation with the German Daily Handelsblatt: The University Innovation Challenge. It aims at promoting innovative ideas from university research. There are six different categories of product, service or business model. The prerequisite for eligibility is that the business idea must either still be at the university research stage or have been developed by a start-up with a university background.

The winners of the University Innovation Challenge will be chosen on 21 October 2021 in Frankfurt am Main and will widely benefit from a broad mentoring and promotion package, including prominent media coverage. Application is still open until 12 September. More info and application on https://award.handelsblatt.com/university-challenge
