Lengow launches competition for startups
During the third edition of Lengow Ecommerce Day, which will take place in Paris on June 2 this year, there will be also a competition for startups active in the ecommerce industry. The five finalists of this competition will get an exhibitor stand at the Lengow Ecommerce Day, where 700 merchants and industry experts are expected.
The international Start-up Spotlight Competition is open to any start-ups with a product or service that “revolutionized the ecommerce world”, as the organization’s description reads. “It’s an opportunity for companies to showcase what they have to offer in front of a qualified audience of merchants, industry experts and media at the Lengow Ecommerce Day.” On this day, the five finalists will have a stand at the Lengow Ecommerce Day and opportunities to meet with other retailers, ecommerce professionals and potential investors.
Public voting to decide the 5 finalists
Out of all entries ten start-ups will get on a shortlist. A public vote via social media will decide which five companies will go the final, where they will get the opportunity to pitch their concept during a 5-minute presentation in front of an international audience of ecommerce professionals and journalists. At the end, a jury of investors and ecommerce experts will select the winner.
