Start-ups can apply for the EU Top 50 Start-ups Competition until 25 October.

Independent from the competition and whether they are among the Top 50 or not, they are cordially invited to participate in the ‘Hemicycle Start-up Convention’ where more than 800 entrepreneurs, policy makers, investors and corporate representatives will witness the pitches of the winners and listen to charismatic speeches.

  • Pitch in the Hemicycle of the European Parliament
  • Showcase their venture in the Summit exhibition area
  • Participate in face-to-face meetings with corporate decision makers and investors
  • Attend an intimate networking gathering with millennial founders
  • Participate in workshops on EU support for start-ups, scale-up and internationalisation
  • Gain media exposure: the EU Top 50 will be presented in a Special EU Top 50 Magazine
