    How RESTART2020.org is different from other startup competitions and hackathons?


    You can register for the competition starting on the 1st of July 2020 in two categories: IDEA and PROJECT.


    During the RESTART2020 program, with the help of excellent innovation specialists and mentors, you can create an online One-Pager to present your ideas and projects. Anyone can vote for them through an open platform (voting starts early August).

    The ranking is based on the votes, and a professional jury will select the best ideas and projects to be presented at the online mini-conference. You have a chance to get an investment from 300.000$ to 1.500.000$!


    But the journey doesn't stop there!


    RESTART2020 mentors will provide additional advice and help with the implementation after the competition.


    Competitors can also validate their ideas during and after the competition period. Receiving feedback and opinions from other entrants, so they can support each other in implementing new solutions.


    The event is powered by a brand new digital innovation platform, POZI.IO.

    Who can register?


    Entry is open to anyone. During the registration, a simple profile page is created individually. After registration, you can upload your ideas and projects, where you can add your team members (they also need to register first).


    In the future, the POZI.IO platform will also allow you to connect directly to project owners, possible team members, mentors, and investors.


    The networking features will be added later.

    Share your ideas, projects!


    Each applicant can share ideas and projects through the POZI.IO platform.


    Ideas can be shared as short as a few Twitter posts upgraded with a picture.


    Projects will be presented using a traditional one-pager template. In the case of projects, also you have to limit your introduction to Twitter-short answers.


    The One-Pager will consist of these answers.

    This is what you will get:


    Submitted projects and ideas will be reviewed by acknowledged mentors and experts.


    With the help of mentors, the TOP 10 applicants are to create a percussive pitch-deck and video.


    The pitch videos will be introduced to the jury and run for a possible investment.


    Our partner Intellitext offers up to a 300.000$ investment!
