Open call for creative startups "SPECTRA Investment Sprint & Pitch"

Who can apply?

We are looking for start-ups from Ireland, Bulgaria, Germany and Denmark in the field of audio-visual technologies, music, performing arts, game development, animation and immersive technologies, which offer creative solutions and innovative products for both business (B2B) and end customers (B2C).

The sprint and pitch to investors are aimed at companies that are relatively new to funding. The initiative aims to:

  • Learn from experienced investors what they are looking for in these sectors.
  • To receive valuable feedback on your pitch propositions.
  • Improve your pitching skills to investors.
  • To create new business contacts.
  • To speed up the fundraising process.

The program is suitable for companies in the pre-seed or seed stage of development that plan to raise between 250,000 and 750,000 euros in their next round of financing.

What's ahead?
