With the generous support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, two Orange Grove startups are awarded, each quarter, a total of 25.000€ in pre-seed funding in a thrilling pitching competition called “The Squeeze”.
An acclaimed jury made up of successful businessmen, investors and entrepreneurs “squeeze” 8 of the most promising Orange Grove startups, in a live show, as they shoot their ideas through the roof and battle to the bitter end to win the ultimate start an entrepreneur could only dream of, 15.000€ and 10.000€ in prize money!
The competition offers exposure to a broad audience, as well as valuable feedback from an international judges’ panel, whose extensive knowledge and network can prove extremely helpful to the startups.
The Squeeze gives a substantial impetus to youth entrepreneurship by offering startups access to capital and, in the meantime, the opportunity to grow their business to the next level.
The next The Squeeze will take place on Thursday, the 23rd of November 2017.
