The Rheinland-Pitch was initiated by STARTPLATZ in 2013. It has since become the single-biggest startup-pitch event in Germany. In this monthly held competition, up to four founders get the chance to present their startup in front of potentiell investors, customer and corporates. The audience regularly consists of a crowd of more than 100 people. Each team has seven minutes to present their business model and another seven minutes to answer the questions of the audience. The winner of the Rheinland-Pitch is determined via online vote.
