Founders Games is the startup competition of Webit.Festival Europe. During the event we not only provide free grant for startups to get a free expo table, free Festival tickets and opportunity to meet unparalleled selection top enterprise leaders from all around the world + investors, but also an opportunity to WIN €200 000 seed investment!

Here in the section “Who may apply” you can see all the types of companies that fit the Founders Games.

Pre-seed, 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.

First step is to apply with a valid e-mail on the Founders Games page and then fill in the application form that shows up. All participating startups are hand picked so after receiving your form, our team will check through it and will get back at you with further steps regarding the competition in case of approval.

All approved startups shall receive 3 Pro tickets, pitch on stage and expo stand for the 2 days of the Festival’s conference agenda. Startup members can also participate in the 1:1 meetings with investors and VC representatives as well as in the Founders Games competition for the win of the up to the €200K award.

Each startup has 6 minutes on stage: 3 minutes pitch presentation and 3 minutes Q&A session in front of the investors’ jury and attendees. The startups with maximum points from the jury and the investors providing the award will go to the finals and have a second pitch on stage with the closing ceremony. The winner shall be announced after the investors providing the award advise and select the winner/s.

Our team will contact you once the selection part is done. Usually few weeks before the Festival - so you will have time to prepare your presentation.

A schedule with detailed agenda about all the Festival’s parallel summits, startup pitches, workshops and partner events is published on Webit’s website.

We recommend arriving on the first day of the Festival when registration opens in order to get acknowledged with the event venue and avoid waiting in lines.

Though there’s no expo and conference agenda on that day, there are a number of things planned such as the night Urban Summit opening and the Startup Academy. Leaving is at best and if convenient planned after the Founders Games finals and closing ceremony on the last day of the conference.

You can freely explore the Festival, 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 on what’s happening and where - agenda, venue and different things happening simultaneously in order to take the best out for you in terms of your interests and needs.
  • Practice your pitch, in front of people, mirrors, yourself or 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 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 well as well as the city of Webit.
  • Go out and about, meet and talk to people. Personal outreach is encouraged more than the virtual one :)
  • 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.
  • Laptop, tablets, screens.
  • Demo of your product if applicable.
  • Print and ad materials, posters, stickers, lights, wine and anything you can think of to provide attendees with and properly catch their attention.
  • Business cards
  • A big smile and 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 get these two forces’ mutual benefit and collaboration.

Media Corner is the place where all the speakers come to give short interviews for our team - this is usually the place where media representatives get interviews, too.

Each speaker comes to the Media Corner after their keynote. A good advice is to keep an eye on the agenda, see when the speaker of your interest is on stage and come to the Media Corner at that time to wait for them.

Usually we upload the official photos right after the Festival on our flickr page. You can see photos from the previous events here.
