Europe-Asia Startup-Investor Pitch Programme

The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and she1K's C-Shark Tank Season Two will be running a 100% online pitch programme to match early stage European startups with smart capital in Asia. 

European startups can apply for a chance to pitch to a 70-member of VCs, accelerators, corporate ventures, and serial entrepreneurs. The jury will then select 10 out of the 18 shortlisted startups to pitch to C-Sharks (senior corporate executives and angel investors with more than 15 years of industry experience from diverse sectors).

Key benefits for selected startups:

  • Cash investment for top 3 startups – the 30+ C-Sharks commit upfront cash investment to the C-Shark Tank
  • Find potential customers – the top 3 startups will also get to pitch to large Singapore corporates at the next edition of the Singapore Innovation Matching Days in 2H 2020
  • Insights and feedback – participating startups will get honest and high-quality feedback from the C-Sharks and Jury members on their business model and solutions for the Asian market
  • Publicity and network – exposure to the 70-member strong jury, 30+ C-Shark investors and extensive base of programme partners (see brochure)

The programme will be entirely online covering 3 time zones so that startups can gain maximum feedback and visibility to validate their product/market fit as well as fundraise.

European startups can apply to the programme via Apply as soon as possible as startups are accepted on a rolling basis.
