The Ireland Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce (ILCC) is organising its fourth Innovation Contest, with the final (pitching event) to be held on Monday 8 May, the day before ICT Spring 2017 starts.
The ILCC Innovation Contest is based loosely on the Dragon’s Den concept of pitching ideas to potential investors with market experience. The finalist entrepreneurs in the 2017 ILCC Innovation Contest have 5 minutes to pitch their innovations – which cover a vast array of products and services.
Have a look at last year’s pitching sessions:
During the next 5 minutes following the pitch, the Dragons can then ask questions to better understand the business concept. When all pitches have finished, the “Dragons” will deliberate to choose the best pitch(es) for the awarding of prizes.
Judging criteria will be along the lines of Market Research, Prototype, Business Case and Financials, with the individual “Dragons” bringing their own market expertise to their critiques and decisions.
The pitching event will be followed by a networking reception during which the winning pitches will be awarded prizes from different organisations.
