Falling Walls Venture is a global platform for the most promising research-based start- ups nominated by academic institutions from across the world. The format provides a stage for pioneering founders who have successfully turned science into business, proving how entrepreneurial solutions can help solve today’s most pressing challenges. Every year, emerging companies compete across various industry clusters. In 2020, the winner of the competition is awarded the title “Science Start-Up Breakthrough of the Year”.
Throughout the year, universities and research institutions from all over the world are called upon to nominate their most innovative science start-up for the competition. The most promising young companies and the representatives of the nominating institutions are invited to pitch on the Falling Walls Venture stage. Additionally, they gain access to exclusive networking events and the Falling Walls Community.
