The Pitch & Hire your Doctor (PhD) competition allows innovative start-ups to enhance their visibility and recruit top talent. At the PhDTalent Career Fair, 10 selected start-ups have 2 minutes each to convince the doctoral students and doctors.
The purpose of this contest
We are convinced that PhDs have all the necessary qualities to evolve within a start-up. Through this contest, we want to allow the meeting between entrepreneurs and talents.
Who says contest says price. In keeping with the spirit of the competition, our prizes will allow you to facilitate your recruitments and your development.
The 10 start-up finalists will benefit from a free booth in a dedicated space, worth € 1220 excluding tax, on October 16, 2020 at the PhDTalent Career Fair.
The winners of the Prix du Jury and the Prix du Public will receive HR support, valued at € 4000 before tax, made by our partner Crédey & Associés.
