GDI is calling on all dating startups to apply to our brand new startup competition, Spotlight on Startups.
The event, which takes place on the 27th October, will see the hottest new dating startups pitch, get questioned by attendees & experts, before the winners are picked by an audience vote.
We wanted the competition to be a fun event open to dating startups of all sizes, so the competition will be split into two categories – early stage and growth stage.
Throughout the event, we will put on food and drink, and there will be breaks for networking in between pitches.
Everyone who makes it past the application process and onto our final shortlist will pitch on the night, giving a presentation to the room, getting asked questions by attendees & experts, before a winner is picked by public vote.
And we are very excited to announce that our expert panel on the night will feature Mike Butcher from TechCrunch, as well as other industry leaders from eHarmony & Venntro.
Held at The Singer Tavern near Old Street, we are expecting over 100 attendees at the event from the online dating industry, London tech scene as well as investors and national & tech press that we have lined up.
If you are shortlisted, you will also receive two free tickets to the evening event (usually worth £50 each) as well as food and drink all evening.
The application process ends on the 27th September, and we will announce the finalists for both categories soon after.
