29. May 2012–
The jury and mentor line-up for Berlin's second installment of startup pitch event TWiST has today been confirmed.
Judges will then hand-pick three of the strongest startups for a live pitch-off battle against London, hosted by Valley-based This Week in Startups member Jason Calacanis.
To tweak and transform upcoming startups into fine one-minute pitchers, will be rehearsal mentors: Berlin actress Bianca Praetorius (pictured above right), co-founder of Startupbootcamp Alex Farcet, founder of Berlin Startup Academy Christopher Räthke, and last year's Startup Weekend “best pitch” winner Christoph Sollich.
Here's a brisk walk-through of the event on 8 June:
7 - 9pm - Pre-competition. The jury selects three of the strongest startups for the live competition (and a practice pitch run-through gets madly underway)
9 - 10pm - Live Show. Jason Calacanis will host the competition between London and Berlin
10pm - Aftershow Party at Ahoy! with up to 400 people. DJ Hemingway, a Grammy Award-winning musician will be scratching up the decks with lots of free beers.
Earlybird tickets are still available for the quick...
