€1.000.000 For Regional Startups, from Foundcenter Investment Belgrade

Foundcenter Investment Belgrade has announced their “CATCH” Pitch Challenge call for entries for innovative ideas related to IT technology, health technology, natural resources & agriculture, mobility, business products & services, art & design and other industry segments.

On this occasion, Foundcenter Investment will directly invest up to €1 Million in the best ideas and teams and if you want to have a chance, you can apply by July 1st, 2016.

In late September 2016, the pre-selected applicants will be given a unique opportunity to pitch their ideas directly to the board of German investors in Jugoslovenska kinoteka in Belgrade.

Foundcenter Investment has only one requirement- to have an idea, product or business with a potential to scale internationally.

Foundcenter Investment is a German investment fund based in Berlin, Los Angeles and, since recently, in Belgrade. Overall investment fund for SEE set up by Foundcenter Investment amounts to €100 Million with the purpose to boost and encourage creativity and innovation in entrepreneurship, and contribute to the projects and already existing businesses with a potential for international market expansion.

„Innovation should be a “toothbrush” thing – to be something that people would use twice a day. Another option is to provide a solution to a global challenge or a problem. One should never base his innovation on the profit. Those who invented cars were not led by a profit but by a solution to people transportation.“  said Lothar Eckstein, member of the board of investors, for 150sec.com
