Is this for me?
Why should I apply?

The best startups/ ideas can obtain investments from our company.

  • Logistics
  • Location
  • Wage costs for a certain period
  • Development hours for your idea

You will not receive the money in hand, instead, we will support your startup/ idea with any resources in order to accelerate it and to make it grow.

Testimonials

"Idea Challenge was first of all a great opportunity in understanding the rigors of our start-up from a business perspective. We participated in the competition in October 2015 and we made it on the podium, as the 3rd team in the contest. However, after further evaluation, ECON team was chosen to send a representative in United States of America for evaluating the best investment approach. At this moment we are building a strategy so we can move forward to define a first milestone and its implementation financial needs."

Econ Team

"From my point of view the event was a great one and didn't find flaws in it. Being the 1st edition that you organized, I see it as a good benchmark for the next ones. Definitely I would come to the next one and be much more prepared. I would look up to how the pitches are held and try to make the idea worthwhile."
