Startup Pitch

Many startups are active in the field of recruitment technology. Young companies that challenge existing technologies and providers with innovative solutions. These companies of the future often do not have large marketing budgets. Recruitment Tech Demo_Day on June 11th 2020 in Utrecht, the Netherlands, therefore offers three startups the opportunity to present themselves for free. Who will follow up this year’s 2019 winners: Namaka, RecruitRobin and Recruitment Accelerator?

Submit until March 11th 2020

From Wednesday February 19th until Wednesday March 11th 2020 startups can submit their Startup Pitch and indicate why they should not be missing during Demo_Day 2020. Together with the public jury, the organization will decide which three startups can present themselves for free. The organization will judge the pitches on the following matters:

  • Innovative character of the tool;
  • Distinctiveness of the solution;
  • Substantiation of the pitch;
  • Quality of the pitch

Who can participate?

The Startup Pitch is intended for European startups in the field of recruitment and/or talent technology. The startup must be established after 1 January 2019. The organisation must act as a startup by clearly mentioning this in its communication and/or be associated with an incubator and/or have a maximum of 10 employees.

Public jury

The public may vote for the nominated startups from the 18th of March until the 8th of April 2020. The results of the public jury and the organization both count for 50%. On Wednesday 15 April the winners will be announced via a live stream via LinkedIn from 16.00 – 16.30 hrs.

What will the winning startups get?

Three startups will get a demo spot in the Startup Corner during Demo_Day and 2 crew tickets. The organization will provide a demo desk to place, for example, a laptop on to give a demo. We also provide power and wifi. As a startup you only need to bring a rollup banner (maximum 85 cm wide), laptop and flyer material. In addition, you will provide a short demo of your tool in the Speakers Corner. Furthermore, the startups get the necessary visibility through Recruitmenttech.nl, Recruitment Tech Podcasts and the Recruitment Tech Monthly.

One of the three startups, with the most votes from the public jury and the organization, will be awarded with the first prize: besides a pitch during the plenary opening of Demo_Day an Expo partnership during the Recruitment Tech Event 2020 worth € 2.250,-.
