Five good reasons to enter the 6th Discovering Start-Ups Competition - Last Call for Entries
DS15 promises innovation-focused mashup of live pitches, demos, keynotes and networking
The 6th Discovering Start-Ups Competition (DS15), jointly organised by Cambridge Wireless (CW) and SETsquared, has already seen tech start-up entries from across the UK and Europe from mobile apps and IoT to Big Data and software solutions for education and healthcare. As the deadline for entries approaches - 12 noon, Monday 14th September – it is the last chance for early stage tech companies, digital entrepreneurs and SMEs to win the chance to pitch their business ideas to an expert panel of judges and VCs representing Google, London Business Angels, Deloitte UK, Amadeus Capital Partners, Wayra, Telecom Italia, IBM, Samsung, MediaTek and many more.
The London final on 21st October 2015 is sponsored and hosted by business advisory firm Deloitte who continue to drive tech enterprise innovation through the Fast 500 initiative and last year invested £25 million in their own employees’ start-up ventures.
David Cobb, innovation tax partner at Deloitte comments “often working with limited resources, it can be difficult for start-ups to dedicate enough time and investment to research and development. Competitions such as this recognise the endeavour that early-stage businesses put into the development of new ideas and creating valuable intellectual property. Innovation is a fundamental component of economic growth. Deloitte is proud to support aspiring businesses in the UK and Europe as they aim to revolutionise their respective industries through innovation and entrepreneurship”.
DS15 is a unique opportunity to gain professional business insight and immediate feedback during the London final from highly experienced entrepreneurs, VCs and investment experts. Here are some of the competition highlights:
