the battle for young startups

The Pitch Battle is a new part of unicon introduced for the first time this year. Young start-ups or well developed projects can pitch their idea in front of known early-stage investors as a jury and all our participants as an audience. This is for everybody who seeks an exciting opportunity to get their idea out in the world and form useful connections to investors and other industry experts.

the winners

In 2022 we had the first edition of our Pitch Battle. We had the pleasure to have five unique pitches. Our jury was only allowed to crown one winner, Traide.
Congratulations to Traide for being the first-ever winner of the Unicon Pitch Battle. A Berlin-based Start-Up that pursues the vision of borderless international trade processes all over the world. To achieve that, they rely on a technology-driven approach and develop AI-based cloud solutions that focus on the cooperation between people and technology.
