The SevenVentures Pitch Day offers start-ups the chance to win media power worth 3 million euros and budget for their own TV spot. As part of the 4GAMECHANGERS Festival, the live finale will take place for the first time on Tuesday, June 28, from the 4GAMECHANGER STUDIO. Hansi Hansmann, Magdalena Oehl and Florian Weber will form the top-class jury, Steven Gätjen will guide through the evening.
For the 11th time, SevenVentures Pitch Day 2022 offers young companies a platform and opportunity for sustainable advertising power. According to Forbes Magazine, the start-up competition is one of the most important in the world. For the first time, the finals of the start-up competition will be outside Germany. True to the motto "The Power of Cooperation", 4GAMECHANGERS and SevenVentures Pitch Day are building an international bridge again in 2022 and bringing the event LIVE to Vienna. The winner will receive an advertising budget for a TV and digital campaign in the amount of 3 million euros - one of the most lucrative prizes in the annual start-up calendar and the opportunity to produce their own TV spot with an extensive budget.
Innovative start-ups with consumer-oriented products and services have a chance of winning. In addition, the companies should already be at a stage of development where they can sustainably benefit from the advertising power of a moving image campaign and thus quickly scale their business model for a broad market. In line with the motto "Boost Your Brand", the SevenVentures Pitch Day 2022 is primarily aimed at German & Austrian B2C growth companies that want to gain a foothold in the domestic market, as well as international companies that are about to expand to the German-speaking region.
