MCEI Seed Award 14.02.2017

Lounge Opening 2017 in Café L3 on February 14, 2017.

The Startup Lounge is your place to get inspired to create something new, to discuss great ideas while hanging out with cool people and to meet startups, students and creative minds in a laid-back atmosphere. Join us if you are into start-ups and want to build a network in the Rhein-Neckar area!

The Startup Lounge is going to kick off 2017 with a special startup lounge to find and award the winner or the MCEI Seed Award! 

15 startup teams submitted their pitch decks by the January 15th deadline (some just before midnight!), most of which meet the eligibility requirements set forth in our call for the best University of Mannheim Startup 2016. Eligible pitch decks will be rated by a panel of independent external experts leading to three finalists, which will be announced on or around February 7th and will then receive invitations to pitch for the prize on February 14th at the Startup Lounge (from 7:30 pm), accross the street from the Mannheim Castle.

The final jury will include representatives of VC and law firms, the city of Mannheim and organizations that coach startups in the Rhein-Neckar region. After a brief decision period, the winners will be announced at the award ceremony.

The prize money (€ 10 000), kindly sponsored by the Heinrich Vetter Foundation, is meant to support the market launch of the startup’s product or service. All applicants will be eligible to join our new startup mentoring program in cooperation with the university’s alumni association, Absolventum.
