The startups will pitch in person at our GTEC Blockchain Innovation Award Ceremony in Berlin on Tuesday 17th May in front of investors, fellow founders and other members of the Berlin startup ecosystem. Each startup will have 5 minutes to pitch their idea to an audience of investors, founders and representatives from Berlin’s startup ecosystem. Our expert judges will choose the prize winners (Gold €20,000; Silver €15,000; and Bronze €10,000). The audience will get to vote in real time using blockchain technology for which startup receives our Community Prize (€5,000)

The Award Ceremony is also about bringing together important influencers in the European and international blockchain scene. There will be keynotes from blockchain founder Trent McConaghy (ascribe, BigchainDB), Thomas Birr (Head of Strategy & Innovation, RWE), and Jens Hewald and Thomas Hessler (Founders of Globumbus), plus drinks, celebrating, and networking.

We’d love to see you at what promises to be Berlin’s biggest blockchain meetup. Check out the details here
