Take a chance to be part of the Tropics Startups Pitch Competition and pitch to a global audience of major investors and industry leaders at TROPICS Finals in mid-October 2021!

The winning startups will walk away with over US$800,000 in grant and cash prizes.

Who can apply ?


Our pitch preparation process allows our semi-finalists to take part in unique presentation workshops and one-on-one meetings with industry leaders.

Our goal is to help them prepare for the semifinal event which includes a live presentation in front of an audience of investors and c-level professionals from the industry.

Those selected will then receive additional workshops and personal guidance in preparation for their “pitch perfect” moment at the finals in October.
