PitchIt @ LendIt Returns to Europe in October

This year LendIt is happy to announce that our PitchIt @ LendIt competition is returning to Europe for the second year. This year we are partnering with Startupbootcamp FinTech to feature innovative fintech companies.

Similar to past PitchIt events, 8 finalists will be selected to pitch in front of a panel of judges at LendIt Europe. Our current lineup of judges includes:

  • Dan Cobley (Managing Partner, Fintech at Blenheim Chalcot)
  • Patrick Meisberger (Managing Director, CommerzVentures)
  • Rob Moffat (Partner, Balderton Capital)
  • Reshma Sohoni  (Partner and co-founder, Seedcamp)

In order to qualify startups must have raised less than £4 million, have at least 2 full-time founders, have a working prototype with customer interaction and have been founded in 2014 or later. The 8 finalists will receive 2 free passes to LendIt Europe 2016 and receive up to $1,000 for travel to PitchIt. All finalists will receive mentorship from industry veterans leading up to the final pitch in front of the judges at LendIt Europe. The winner will receive a Bronze sponsorship package at next year’s LendIt event
