The contest seeks to become a leading platform for startups like yours to present their solutions to the world. After the closing of the call, 20 startups will be selected to pitch in one of the stages of The Gap in Between. There will be an overall winner, who will receive €10,000, and four finalists recognized for having the best team, the greatest environmental impact, the greatest social impact and the most innovative solution.
