On 27 April, the selected startups will receive coaching from experienced mentors on how not to be a deer in the headlights and how to wow both the jury and the audience.
On 28 April, with the new tricks up their sleeves, the startups will take the stage for a 3-minute pitch and 2-minute Q&A to determine the top startup in each of the five semi-finals.
On 29 April, we will close TechChill 2022 with the final showdown. The finals are not for the fainthearted. The stakes will be high for this one and only one startup will be claimed as the winner, but all startups will have the chance to dip their toes in the prize pool.
