The European Blockchain Convention is organizing the EBC Startup Battle in Barcelona this October, and we want YOU to be part of it. We’re on the hunt for the best 50 early-stage founders to take the stage at our Startup Battle.

What is the EBC Startup Battle?

The EBC Startup Battle is the startup competition, part of the 9th European Blockchain Convention, that will take place on October 24-26 in Barcelona.

Drawing from 6 years of experience in bringing together blockchain and Web3 enthusiasts across Europe, we hope to give early-stage startups more opportunities to shine and expand their business while forging connections with our network of investor partners.

The 50 startup finalists will pitch their game-changing ideas to a crowd of investors and 5,000 attendees. Each team will receive 4 FREE General Passes to join the event. The company’s logo and information will also be listed on the EBC website for some killer exposure.

The jury members will select one winning startup, who will walk away with some seriously sweet sponsor perks and diverse marketing opportunities.
