Open-Mic @ Chemovator - Women in BASF

Join Open-Mic @ Chemovator!

Pitch your idea around chemistry and compete for spectacular prizes! You can also join as a visitor to listen to great pitches and mingle with like-minded innovators.

Chemovator is looking once again for brave BASF-employees to join us (virtually) on stage and pitch their business idea in front of an audience of interested BASF colleagues. If you have what it takes, you get the chance to deliver a 4 minute pitch & get valuable feedback from experienced founders, investors & business angels! The jury will elect the three winning pitches and deliver the prizes.

+++ Women in BASF +++

We embrace diversity and believe it contributes a great deal to creativity. Hence, we want to encourage more women to take a step towards entrepreneurship and get a (first) taste of it. This is why we want to dedicate the upcoming Open-Mic to inspiring women in BASF. This is your chance to pitch your great ideas to our all-female jury.

Although this Open-Mic is themed, you can register with an idea from any area or industry. We look forward to hearing it.

What are the requirements for participating?

Your idea should be an original and unique business idea - not a technology pitch. It can but does not have to relate to the chemical industry. It doesn't matter whether you just started working on your idea or if you already developed a mature business plan. The only thing that matters is to convince the audience & the jury.

If you do not have a business idea and want to join as a visitor, you do not need to bring something.
