7 minutes for part of €7 million. Not quite the European version of Shark Tank (you won’t get VC funding), but you could see your startup’s idea be given a hefty TV marketing budget to break into the European market.
Not a bad proposition, especially when you consider that funding opportunities can be hard to come by, especially when it comes to new and unfamiliar markets where you have fewer contacts and less knowledge of the local demographics.
If all of this sounds like a sweet deal, consider getting your application into SevenVentures Pitch Day (7VPD) right away. Seven applicants will be selected to pitch their idea to a pretty tough jury and compete for part of a €7 million pool in TV marketing dollars to promote your idea in Europe.
It all takes place at the upcoming NOAH Conference in London.
What exatly is 7VPD?
7VPD is an annual startup competition held by Germany’s largest TV network corporation, ProSiebenSat1. While the first two 7VPD competitions consisted mostly of German startups, this year the competition is intentionally targeting international founders and consumer startups looking to break into or grow in the European market. The winners will receive a total of 7 Million Euros in European TV advertisements. This is an unprecedented opportunity for innovative international entrepreneurs looking to expand their reach.
When and Where
SevenVentures Pitch Day will take place on November 13, 2014 in London at the NOAH Conference, Europe’s leading event for Internet CEOs, executives, and investors.

Christian Wegner, Member of the Executive Board of ProSiebenSat.1, said “We are thrilled to be extending the competition to international applicants for the first time this year.
