Here's the Agenda of GROW 2019/20

Event calendar

The support program consists of two main areas: Mentoring to access experience of others and Workshops to improve yourself. More information will follow later on.

Kickoff

The kickoff is where the fun starts, no matter whether you have already applied or whether you're still undecided. We will present everything you need to know about the contest and give you a chance to find an idea and/or teammates. And the 11 weeks of work will start right away.

Seed Day

At the seed day we want to connect teams and mentors. First, you get a short chance to pitch both your idea and what you need help with in front of everyone. Then you can find the most suitable mentors in short one-on-one talks.

Half time break! Pitch what you've done in the last 5 weeks in front of a small audience and a jury. The judges will select 10 teams out of all participants to continue with the second half of the content and ultimately the final.

Final

This is what you've been working for! Pitch one last time in front of a huge audience and show what you've learned and how far you have come. Every pitch is followed by a short round of questions by the judges before you can get a chance at winning one of the prizes.
