Our 2 Stages

DV Pitch

We’re searching for the next entrepreneur(s) who will ignite a spark in our judges’ hearts and inspire them to pedal fast. Do you have what it takes to win their hearts and minds?

DV Connection

Immerse yourself in thought-provoking discussions with Delta Cafés’ management, industry peers, and startups from our portfolio.

DV Pitch

Showcase your 3-minute pitch, followed by a Q&A session, to senior management members of Delta Ventures and Grupo Nabeiro for an opportunity to win €10,000, join DV’s immersive boot camp, and explore potential collaboration with Grupo Nabeiro, one of Portugal’s most renowned companies. Application open until 10 November 2023.

Following the application period, DV will assess all candidates.
After a meticulous review, DV selects the Top 6 F&B Startups and the Top 6 Sustainability & Digital Transformation Startups to present in the DV Pitch Semi Final at the Web Summit.
DV will offer personalised guidance to all selected startups, assisting candidates to deliver their best at the Web Summit.
On November 14, all selected startups will present to DV’s Judge Panel at Web Summit. Six startups will advance to the final and receive each a mentoring session with DV.
On November 16, the top 6 startups will pitch to Grupo Nabeiro's board, including CEO Rui Miguel Nabeiro, at the Web Summit. The winner will be announced on the same day.

The Rules:

Pedals will be spinning as our four judges gear up during the pitches. Now, let’s roll into how the qualification process works:
  • If three or more judges keep pedalling until the pitch ends, the startup gets a green light for the Q&A round.


  • If two or more judges stop pedalling during the pitch, the startup doesn’t qualify, but receives constructive feedback.


  • In the semi-final, if all judges pedal continuously for 15 seconds post-pitch, the startup advances straight to the final without a Q&A.


  • During the Q&A, judges take a break from pedalling. It’s their time to ask questions without spinning the wheels.
