Frequently Asked Questions

Founders Games is the only global platform powered by the collective intelligence of 400+ late-stage VC investors who commit their time to score 4500+ applications from 150+ countries each year. The finalists are selected among the highest-ranked companies (scaleups) after five rounds of the competition.
All of the selected startups shall receive 3 Pro tickets with access to all the festival's parallel summits, events, and workshops, an expo stand for a day at the festival, and the opportunity to get selected for the Founders Games pitches in front of investors and a selected jury.
Post-seed and growth-stage startups founded less than 8 years ago are all welcome to apply. You can check on the different startup verticals and see if they fit your company’s product or service.
Our team will contact you once the selection process is over. A few weeks before the festival, we close the application process so that startups will have time to prepare and for the schedule to be set.
A schedule with a detailed agenda for all the festival’s parallel summits, startup pitches, workshops, and partner events is published on Webit’s website.

We recommend arriving one day before the start of the event. Leaving is, at best, and if convenient, planned after the closing ceremony on the last day of the conference. You can freely explore the festival and have meetings, food and drinks, and fun, but it’s advisable to have a representative from your team at your stand at (almost) all times.

  • Get acknowledged with the big picture of what’s happening and where the agenda, venue, and different things are happening simultaneously in order to take the best out of you in terms of your interests and needs.
  • Practice your pitch in front of people, mirrors, yourself, or even your cat. You'll have 3 minutes to persuade the attendees and investors’ jury (present and online) why your idea should be in their hearts and minds and why it deserves to be a winner. Make it clear and convincing.
  • Do some research. You can check the speakers, investors, and all attendees of Webit and prepare with background information and cool conversation starters.
  • Explore the festival properly, as well as the city of Webit.
  • Go out and about, meet, and talk to people. Personal outreach is encouraged more than virtual ones.
  • Get some rest. The Webit party needs you fit, in high power and energy levels.
  • Bring a friend or three. Events are better when shared with a company.
  • Laptops, tablets, and screens.
  • A demo of your product, if applicable.
  • Print and ad materials —posters, stickers, lights, wine, and anything else you can think of to provide attendees with and properly catch their attention.
  • Business cards.
  • A big smile and a camera to take pictures when on stage, off stage, and everywhere you feel like it.
  • Lots of positive energy!
As a non-profit, Webit Foundation is unable to cover travel and accommodation costs for startups other than the discount grant for participation. We're striving to build a bridge between the enterprise and startup worlds and to gain these two forces’ mutual benefit and collaboration.
