EU Ideathon 2024: Innovate, Pitch, Win. The Ultimate ICP EU Ideathon 2024 Experience!

Are you an ICP developer or forward-thinking entrepreneur based in Europe with an idea that could impact AI, DePIN, or the wider Web3 ecosystem? If so, this is your chance to shine! ICP is on the hunt for Europe’s most disruptive thinkers and ambitious changemakers.

The Ultimate Online Bootcamp & Ideas Pitch Competition, organised by ICP Hubs across Europe, invites participants to showcase their startup concepts and compete for a share of the $44,000 prize pool. This virtual event promises to be an exciting journey for all participants, providing exposure, mentorship, and the opportunity to turn ideas into reality.

What is the EU Ideathon?

The ICP EU Ideathon is a premier idea pitch competition that fosters innovation within AI, decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks (DePIN), and the general Web3 space. Unlike traditional hackathons, this competition emphasizes the power of ideas over coding prowess. Participants must present their concepts, develop compelling pitch decks, and create impactful pitch videos to convince a panel of expert judges.

Participating in the ICP EU Ideathon has many perks, including exposure to industry leaders, potential investors, and a broader audience, which can help elevate your startup. The networking opportunities are invaluable, allowing you to connect with like-minded innovators, entrepreneurs, and experts who can provide advice, mentorship, and collaboration possibilities. 

Additionally, the Ideathon equips participants with critical resources and feedback; the online bootcamp helps refine your pitch, while the evaluation process offers constructive insights from seasoned professionals. This extensive support can be instrumental in transforming an idea into a successful venture.

EU Ideathon Key Dates

The competition features two tracks: DeAI, which focuses on innovations leveraging decentralized AI technologies, and DePIN, which seeks solutions focusing on democratizing resource contribution and decentralizing physical infrastructure. The prize pool is a generous $44,000.

  • July 7th-12th: Evaluations. Watch your ideas get scrutinized and celebrated by experts.

The ICP EU Ideathon winner announcement event will coincide with the Startup Connect: Brussels Edition event co-hosted by Cointelegraph Acceleration, Newtribe Capital, and multiple Internet Computer Hubs (ICP Hubs). European winners of the ideathon will have the exclusive opportunity to pitch their projects in front of investors, executives, and media publications at this prestigious event. This exposure provides invaluable opportunities for networking, investment, and media coverage, further accelerating the growth and success of their innovative ideas.

Submission Requirements

To enter the competition, participants must submit two items: a comprehensive pitch deck and an accompanying pitch video.

Pitch Deck

The pitch deck should clearly communicate the following key aspects of the project:

·         The core purpose and vision of the project.

  • The specific problem(s) the project aims to solve.
  • Why now is the right time for the project to be funded and launched?
  • The total funding amount required to execute the project plan.

Your pitch deck should provide enough detail and evidence to make a compelling case for your project. Participants can find the full list of pitch deck requirements and formatting guidelines here.

Pitch Video

In addition to the pitch deck, participants must submit a pitch video lasting between 3-5 minutes. This video should summarize the key points from the pitch deck in a concise and engaging way and should also deliver a compelling argument for why the project deserves to win the competition.

Furthermore, the video should highlight the most important and impressive aspects and leave the judges excited about your vision and confident in your ability to execute.

Remember, the pitch video should complement your pitch deck, not simply repeat the same information. With this in mind, feel free to show visuals, demos, or testimonials that bring the project to life.
