On 8th of February, Prague will host the very first national round of Women Startup Competition, unique competition for startups where at least one of the co-founders is a woman. This competition provides a one and only chance for local women-led startups to meet other entrepreneurs, find investment and gain invaluable experience and media visibility.
The ambassador of the competition for the Czech Republic is Pavlína Zychová from MyStay, who participated in the 2015 international round in Budapest.
From all the applications, jury will select 7 the most interesting startups, that will later present themselves in a form of 2-minute pitch in English on a Final evening, which will take place on 08.02 from 18:30 in STRV space (Rohanské nábřeží 678/23, Prague 8). The Jury consists of Margareta Křížová (CEAG), Vladimír Sedlařík (Microsoft), Gabriel Szuma (EQUUS VENTURES), Lenka Kučerová (Starlift) či Shaurya Saluja (Aacon Labs).
The winner of the local round of competition in Prague will get to the international round in London, where she will attend a 5-day workshop and present herself at the Final Demo Day on the 1st of July 2017 in front of local investors and journalists.
