Announcing L59 Pitching Competition Pre-finalists

For the first time in L59's history, we're hosting pre-finals for the Latitude59 and EstBAN pitching competition. So if you can’t wait for another month to get your Latitude59 fix, then tune in every day next week, 3 - 7 August at 3 pm EEST.

Announcing L59 Pitching Competition Pre-finalists

Why the pre-finals? Startups have always been the main focus of Latitude59 and in this peculiar yet spectacular year we’ve taken it upon ourselves to provide startups with more ways to showcase themselves. Before, during and after Latitude59. We also felt that the usual way of just choosing the top 5-10 finalists from the hundreds of applications we receive each year didn’t do justice to all the strong teams that apply.

Out of 50+ pre-finalists, our juries will pick 10 startups who get to attend the Startup Wise Guys online boot-camp on 13 August, to get feedback on their business model and receive pitching training. The boot-camp will then be followed by the EstBAN investor committee on 14 August, where the top5 teams who will be competing for the 200K EUR investment as well as 10K EUR cash from Latitude59. The finalists will pitch on the Latitude59 Blue Stage on 28 August.

So here they are, the top 50 (and then some) strongest teams from this year’s L59 x EstBAN pitching competition.

Make sure to tune in on our Facebook and Youtube channels to check out the best startups of 2020.

Based on the applications, we’ve divided the strongest teams into five different verticals:
