EBS Symposium and Pitch-Battle

EBS Symposium and Pitch-Battle EBS

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
