ABOUT OUR EVENT

Networking and competition at the same time turn the IRM Retail Startup Showcase 2021 into a must!

The Startup Showcase offers a unique event for the retail and consumer goods industry, where retail researchers, managers and investors from the DACH region network with promising founders - selected by our top-class jury.

 

The program combines thematic inputs such as keynote speeches by top managers, exciting pitches by founders and interactive networking elements with Bürli & Bier. We open the competition for start-ups from three central areas [logistics & procurement; consumer goods & product innovations; shopping experience, customer inspiration & technology], which are relevant for both retail and the consumer goods industry. The 10 most convincing start-ups are allowed to impress the jury with their business model in a pitch on site.

 

Our top-class jury consists of experts from the retail sector, the FMCG industry and venture capitalists. They will evaluate the start-up pitches according to three investment criteria [financial value, organizational value and added value for the customer].

The application phase for the IRM.Retail Startup Showcase 2021 is closed.
