"Venture Cup is one of the most publicized and respected competitions of its kind in Sweden. There are so many success stories that have come from ideas that have won that we feel it will increase our chances as well. Since our main goal is getting the PeckiiLess solution into as many hands as possible, anything we can do to increase our chances is time well spent."Marzyeh AdvandFounder PeckiiLess
"We have learnt a lot. When we have to put what is on our minds and discussed multiple times and explain it to someone else, your business plan is no longer a draft. Venture Cup is a great way to force you to present your idea, get constructive feedback from experts and make some great contacts in the future that can help you develop further your idea."Jorge RomanFounder FastKrono
"Venture Cup is probably the most important entrepreneurship competition on a national level. To win is to be recognized as one of the most prominent, interesting and viable startups in Sweden."Manolo ObayaBusiness Coach, Founders Loft
