STARTUPS

PASSES PASSES

PASSES

1. What pass should I buy if I want to represent startup at Infoshare?

This year Startup Pass is free, but the first step would be applying for it. We allow ourselves to check if you are a truly innovative tech project before we invite you to join Infoshare 2021 conference. Remember it is one pass per person, but when accepted you will have 3 startup passes in total on your account. You can transfer two of them to any of your team members. Thanks to this your team members do not need to fill-in the form again if they want to take part in the conference. If you need more passes, use other options to get access as we granted only 3 startup passes per team.

If you want to take part in the Startup Contest (for seed and early stage project only), just mark the right checkbox in the Startup Pass and add pitch deck. One thing to consider, you have three Startup Passes to use, but only the person applying for them can change data in the Startup Pass, including pitch deck update for the Startup Contest evaluation.

If conference is held fully online due to the Polish government restrictions, you will still have a free access to it. If the conference is limited in the number of participants that can enter the venue due to the Polish government restrictions, paid passes would take precedence (it is not applicable to 30 Startup Contest Semifinalists but with offline access for one person per team).

2. Is startup pass right for me?

Infoshare agrees with Steve Blank's definition: a startup is an organization formed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model and a business model describes how your company creates, delivers and captures value. The startup offers its own innovative product. Companies offering services, like consulting and programming services (e.g. software houses) can not be named startup in this definition.

3. What does the startup pass include?

You can check what the startup pass includes here.

4. Is one startup pass for one person only?

Yes, one startup pass gives access to the Infoshare conference for one person only, but when we accept your project as a startup you will get three passes in the package. You can transfer two of them to any of your team members. If you need more passes, use other options to get access as we granted only 3 startup passes per team.

EXPO EXPO

EXPO

1. Who can have a booth at Infoshare Startup Expo?

Infoshare Virtual Startup Expo is for startups only. To get the booth you need to mark the right checkbox in the Startup Pass form and be accepted as a startup. Just a quick reminder: Infoshare qualifies startups as project that offer their own innovative products. Expo is not for enterprises or companies offering services, like software houses or consulting agencies. Infoshare reserves the right to accept or refuse the Startup Expo application. Refusal might occur in case of applying by a Participant who is not a Startup in the Infoshare definition to be found in Regulation of Infoshare 2021 Conference.

2. How does Infoshare Virutal Startup Expo look?

Startup Expo is a virtual booth with startup name and logotype, link to one video material, and startup description. Startup Expo will be live on October 11th 2021. You can learn more here.

CONTEST CONTEST

CONTEST

1. Who can apply for Infoshare Startup Contest?

You have to be a seed (working on the product) or early-stage (having an MVP but before validated business model) startup to apply for the Contest. Only startups at these stages can use this opportunity. Infoshare Startup Contest is not for startups at the concept or growth stage. What is more Infoshare Startup Contest is geographically and industrially agnostic.

2. How can I apply for Infoshare Startup Contest?

  4. Attach your pitch deck to the form
  5. Send it!

Please do remember that you must be either seed or early-stage startup to apply for the Startup Contest!

3. What should a good pitch deck include?

Here you can find an example of a great pitch deck in our opinion, but this is only an example. Feel free to attach any other file with information that helps us understand your product and business strategy. If you want to show either video or audio materials, include links in your pitch deck. One thing you need to consider is evaluation criteria: business potential, team and product level of innovation - you need to cover them in your deck.

4. What are the selection criteria?

Choosing 30 Semifinalists will be based on 3 criteria

  • the product business potential,
