Pitch & hire your Doctor

Concept

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.
