Date: December 1st, 14:00 CEST  |  Location: Online event  |  Public Welcome

Who are the sharks?

The 2021 sharks represent a variety of funding mechanisms – everything from potential to join a world renowned accelerator programme, to grants and open calls, to impact-focused venture capital.

Pitching at this event means:


Getting your name and mission out in the public eye.
Building an audience is key to attracting funding.


The StrikeTwo Sharks will be participating in the summit itself so take the opportunity to get their input early in the process to be pitch-ready by December 1st!


1:1 funding conversations.
The end-goal of the pitch event is for the track owner to spark enough interest with 1 or more sharks, leading to 1:1 conversations about how to proceed to funding.

There is an abundance of expertise and enthusiasm amongst StrikeTwo participants. This results in solid innovation roadmaps and personal commitment from participants to drive the roadmap forward. If you ask past track owners what challenges they face post-StrikeTwo, chances are they’ll tell you the same thing: funding. That’s why in 2021 we’ve made it easier than ever to reach and develop relationships with industry leaders with access to various funding sources.
