Twice a year (Autumn and Spring) we head out to search for the most promising teams, with the best potential to build a global business.

What is the name of your startup?
Tell us about the problem you are trying to solve
Building a startup starts with finding a problem worth solving. The problem you are trying to solve is connected to the Customer and the Solution to the Problem. In your description focus on those three things Customer-Problem-Solution.
Who is on your team?
Startups often pivot and the team has to cope with many different challanges along the way. Please tell us about your team. Things we would like to find out: how many cofounders are there, what are their roles, whats is their background. Please include links to your LinkedIn profiles.
How big is the market?
A startup is a temporary organisation focused on finding a repeatable and scalable business model. Startups are created to really make a dent in the universe. You have to convince us that the market you are going for is big enough. We are not interested in niche, local markets. In your description you should try and show some estimates how many customers are in this market, and how much this market is potentially worth.
