At a time when the pandemic continues to create a sense of uncertainty, key digital innovation players have decided to stop giving in to paralysis and to do everything possible to make the best of it. Such is the case for the team behind the Startup Supercup, a top-notch summit that perfectly meets the need for a rebound that the entire tech sector is waiting for.
Startup founders are aware that making themselves known effectively in the world of private equity is the key to opening the doors to adequate financial support. With the news of vaccinations and the promise of a better (post-Covid) world, project owners want to get on investors’ radars – and what better way to do so than by an event completely disconnected from the urban noise.
A relaxed atmosphere and exclusive relationships at the Startup Supercup
Highly focused on a particular niche, namely tech, this event is set to be one of the most important annual meetings for professionals in the sector. It offers an environment conducive to networking and the conclusion of agreements. Start-up companies can then take advantage of Sarlat’s quietness to establish valuable and vital relationships with various representatives from the financial and technological sphere.
The sustained quality of the small number of 1,000 participants in this first edition bears witness to the exclusive effect sought by the organizers. The Startup Supercup intends to attract only people interested in the development of promising and innovative companies in the dynamic fields of technology.
A real springboard for startups
In addition to the financial rewards, participating in a competition or call for projects above all allows you to gain visibility and increase the notoriety of the start-ups.
Based on the exhibitions and pitches of the startups, a centerpiece of the Startup Supercup is a competition forming one of the most important stages of the event. Investors looking for investment opportunities will be able to tangibly measure the quality of the projects participating in the competition. Conversely, startups will have the opportunity to showcase their innovations and marketing ideas.
The particularity of this competition is that the choice of the most innovative startups is given to the participating public attending during the first phase of the competition. Afterward, the fifteen selected startups will be asked to present their projects before a jury specialized in the field. Special attention could be given to emerging companies with innovative ideas to contribute to the fight against the Covid-19 virus.
There’s a little competition, but that’s not all…
In addition to the competition, networking and discussion are at the heart of the Supercup Startup. In order to keep tech professionals up to date with current topics and trends in the sector, a number of conferences and round tables are also scheduled during the edition. These are stages that encourage debate, information gathering, and commentary. In addition, the exclusive dinners and cocktails planned will enable participants to establish lasting relationships in the unique setting of the Dordogne Valley, located in Rural France, just east of Bordeaux.
Investors (business angels, investment funds…) are generally very busy people. It can take months to schedule a face-to-face meeting with them. The Startup Supercup then offers to the founders of startups a golden opportunity to find the right investor able to accompany their projects, during ‘One-on-one’ meetings.
Startup Supercup is becoming the exclusive and tailor-made event for the meeting of capital and tech startups. The objective is simple, to promote networking in the middle of the beautiful medieval city of Sarlat. Inspire investors, allow startups to put their competence on show, and to ultimately encourage exchange. It is with this in mind that the players in the tech sector will meet from 1 to 3 October 2021. A weekend to reserve in your diaries if you are passionate about innovation!
