scale11 Founders Fight 2018

Assert your business model at the Founders Fights in front of our jury and the critical audience.

Founders Fight Club

The Founders Fight is about critical analysis of business models. Over three rounds two founders fight each other rhetorically, both the jury and the audience cast their votes for the winner.

First Round

In the first round, both startups present their business models for one round each. Each startup then has one minute to attack or defend the opponent's model. The jury chooses the winner. The principle is repeated twice per session.

Second Round

The respective winners will be asked tough questions by the jury and must stand their ground against these "swingers". The audience decides by vote which founder is the winner of the overall round. The winners of the rounds win entry to the Corporate Entrepreneurship Workshops on Thursday and Friday.
