This year, the Latitude59 pitching competition will be different than usual. We will choose the top 50 most active and promising early-stage startups to pitch in the online pre-finals. From the pre-finals, the top 10 teams will go to the final round to pitch in front of investors at the Latitude59 stage.

The prizes are still as impressive – 10K EUR equity-free cash from L59, the grand prize of up to 200K EUR investment supported by EstBAN and more to come.
