ELEVATOR PITCH COMPETITION

Want to learn how to pitch your startup idea? Or just listen to three awesome elevator pitches?

Together with KTH Innovation, we have invited three super inspiring startups to pitch for three minutes each in front of an expert jury. As this is a learning journey for the audience, the jury will give their direct feedback to the startups after their pitches so that you can learn what to do and not do in a company pitch. But first, we will listen to Lisa Ericsson, Head of department KTH Innovation and CEO at KTH Holding AB.

As Swedens oldest and largest technology research and learning institution KTH – Royal Institute of Technology plays a significant role in the transformation to a sustainable society. KTH rests on four pillars; sustainability, equality, digitalization and internationalization. The idea is that these values should be an integral part of our everyday thinking and the work we do within research, education and cooperation. Lisa will talk about how KTH Innovation support new ideas, from students and faculty, way to the market and how this support can encourage more sustainable choices especially connected to the UN SDGs. She will also give some examples of startups and initiatives supported by KTH Innovation.

Do you have a startup idea yourself or do you just enjoy elevator pitches?
