OVHcloud is excited to host a new Startup Competition as part of its annual event, the OVHcloud Ecosystem Experience,  to celebrate technological innovation and collaboration.

 

The online event takes place on 3/4/5 November 2020. It showcases how an ecosystem of partners, united by trust and common values, provide a bedrock for solving current business challenges.

 

Eight selected startups will have an opportunity to perform a 3-minute Pitch, presenting their company and innovative solution, and to take part in a Q&A session with our international jury (October 8th, 2020). Both sessions are recorded and then shared with a global audience of partners, clients, investors, and peers during the Ecosystem Experience.

 

Here at the OVHcloud Startup Program, 2020 is a sharp reminder that digital business is the future and that startups are the pioneers. The purpose of this competition is to showcase new talent and spotlight innovative, exciting products that solve business challenges through transparency and accessibility.

Applications are now closed.

See you on November 5th to follow the event and discover the finalists and winner
